The Beryl Institute announces the publication of the first issue of Patient Experience Journal(PXJ), an international, multidisciplinary, open access, peer-reviewed journal focused on the research and proven practices around understanding and improving patient experience. PXJ is designed to share ideas and research, and reinforce key concepts that impact the delivery of service, safety and quality and their influence on the experience of patients and families across healthcare settings.
PXJ’s commitment is to positively impact healthcare through providing scholars the best in research, theory and methodology, while also informing professionals on issues that will impact their work along the healthcare continuum. The inaugural issue offers twenty articles focusing on five themes:
- Framing the Conversation on Patient Experience
- Patient- and Family-Centeredness
- Physician Impact on Patient Experience
- Measuring Patient Experience Efforts
- Global Perspectives
Bringing together contributions of physicians, nurses, practitioners, patient and family advisory council leaders, family members, scholars, and researchers from across the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Africa, PXJ is a product of and works to exemplify this powerful patchwork of people and ideas that offers such significant possibility in impacting the lives of all those engaging in healthcare systems around the globe.
“This publication is symbolic of all that is right and good about the patient experience movement,” said Jason Wolf, Editor of PXJ and President of The Beryl Institute. “It is in bringing together a diverse community of voices from research to practice and from caregivers to patients and family members through which we can and will have the greatest impact. No one individual or organization owns this conversation or can claim to have every answer. Rather we must remain committed to engaging in exploration and a willingness to learn from one another. PXJ will provide an important outlet for that to occur.”
