Many healthcare organizations believe that the right way to bring healing and resolution to patients and families when an unexpected and unwelcomed outcome occurs, is through honest, open and on-going communication. However, achieving that goal requires providing their staff with the training, tools and on-going guidance they need to be successful. But organizations don’t have to build these resources alone. The PACT Collaborative can help any organization achieve success. Whether the organization is just beginning this important work, or is well on its journey, the resources provided by the PACT Collaborative are invaluable now, and will continue to be so into the future. Being a member of the PACT Collaborative also brings with it the fellowship and support of the PACT member organizations and their professional staff. Our job together has really just begun.
