The Pathway to Accountability, Compassion, and Transparency (PACT) is a learning community committed to improving the way healthcare organizations respond to and learn from harm events.
PACT seeks to ensure that every healthcare organization has a comprehensive, highly reliable process in place for responding when patients are harmed by their care. These programs go by many names – CRP, CANDOR, and CARe are a few – but whatever they are called, they ensure that patients, families, and providers are supported after harm events; that communication is transparent and respectful; that organizations learn from events and improve patient safety as a result; and that when it’s appropriate, financial and non-financial compensation is offered.
There are three ways you can get involved in PACT:
- If you are brand new to the idea of a harm response program and want to explore the concepts on your own time, our Community of Practice is perfect for you and will be launching soon!
- If you are ready to fully implement or dramatically improve your harm response program, the robust support of the PACT Collaborative is for you.
- If you have a mature harm response program in place and want a community of support around sustainability while you step up as an innovative leader in the field, please join our PACT Leadership and Innovation Network.
