Patient Engagement: The Renal Experience Eileen McBrearty A quality service focuses on Person-Centred Care and Support (National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare 2012). This takes into account the needs and preferences of service users and involves service users. It means having the patient voice heard at every level of service. The goal is for patient partnership in their own care and in the processes of designing and delivering care.
Patient Engagement refers to: The knowledge, skills, ability and willingness of patients to manage their own health and care. The culture of the health care organization that prioritizes and supports patient engagement. The active collaboration between patients and providers to design, manage and achieve health outcomes. A growing body of evidence clearly shows that patients who engage with their health care providers have much better clinical outcomes and that health care organizations that emphasize patient engagement can improve productivity and patient satisfaction.
This initiative was designed to complement existing patient consultation, to be part of the HIQA focus on patient safety and other quality initiatives. Recommendation from NHS reports patients should be present and involved at all levels of healthcare organisations. New approach for participating staff to enhance facilitation and listening skills. Why Patient Engagement in Renal? For Our Patient:
To hear from patients about the renal service they receive in Beaumont Hospital. To listen to patients in a different environment where staff and patients are more equal partners, where every opinion counts. To give the patient a voice For patients to share and exchange experiences of the hospital and renal journey. In order to improve this patient experience and quality of care. To give a different angle on care delivered and received.
For Our Staff To listen and learn from patients and their family experiences of the service in Beaumont Hospital. To reach a fuller understanding of the patient journey from the patient perspective. To gain a baseline of the renal service from the viewpoint of our patients, their families and the community groups. To energise and motivate staff. For advocacy and community groups to hear feedback from the patient and family, with these aim to improve
patient care/their service. Beaumont Hospital is committed to patient engagement and learning from patients experiences. It is a priority for Beaumont Hospital at a strategic level. Information shared will be used in the road mapping and development of future TUN service. When it all began. Our first Patient Engagement meeting on July 22nd 2014 Committee members:

Before coming into hospital Beaumont books, website and videos very useful, be aware of presumed knowledge Buddy system Renal Day Care great service Streamlining processes/workup, OPD waiting times and transplant waiting times
Communication mixed feedback, IKA great resource GPs dont understand renal, slow referrals to Nephrology Experience during stay in hospital Felt well supported and safe and sense of being cared for Good education, questions encouraged Accessing renal service directly in Beaumont could be frustrating, use of regional hospital or ED can be difficult Food could be improved, difficult on renal diet
Car parking very expensive Magic curtain of silence Environmental Medical jargon Hardworking staff with low turnover, consistency key for CKD population Emotional support
What it was like on leaving the hospital and aftercare felt at sea, alone No PHN follow up Good information given Family aware of supports available, out of hours telephone service Community physio wait times
Being aware of medication changes Renal Day Care fantastic service Rejection episodes frightening Themes Emerging: Community/Hospital interface: need for greater engagement & education for GPs & PHNs Earlier referrals Self Care: improving empowerment of patient & family, Buddy System
Access to Information and Education Communication Importance of Emotional Support Transport and parking issue What I learned on the day Renal family they are strong relationships Each person has their own journey and we need to come together as community, patient to
