Dialogue with families is an essential element in directing care and services toward the real needs of patients. In order to encourage patients and their families to become more engaged in their care experience, several MUSCO projects aim to equip them with the tools they need in order to learn about the healthcare system and its stakeholders. In addition, when they wish, families can play an active role in their own care journey through specific projects led by the Initiative. The goal of this is to ensure that families have an integrative experience that provides them with tangible opportunities and the empowerment they need to get involved if they so choose.
