Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
Reinforcing its commitment to shape the advancement of the field of patient experience, The Beryl Institute announces the launch of a comprehensive framework for patient experience professional development.
Providing a range of options from individualized learning opportunities to large group interactions, the framework includes a combination of research, publications, programs and events from various sources. It is built on the foundation of the Patient Experience Body of Knowledge, a community-developed set of 15 domains and associated skills identified as being critical for an effective patient experience professional.
The Body of Knowledge and framework for professional development exemplify the Institute’s vision to serve as a global community of practice and thought leader on improving patient experience.
“We are committed to building a strong and vibrant field of patient experience. At its core is the development of informed, active and engaged professionals,” said Jason A. Wolf, Ph.D., president, The Beryl Institute. “The professional development framework provides a foundation and a collaborative learning structure that encompasses a broad range of perspectives. Through the power of this shared learning and commitment to ongoing development, we will sustain the growth and expand the impact of the patient experience movement.”
