Published in association with The Beryl Institute, Volume 2, Issue 1 includes 22 articles from over 77 contributing authors focusing on five themes:
- Patient Experience Movement
- Patient and Family Partnership
- Systems Perspective
Authors represent organizations such as Alberta Health Services, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, CHU de Québec-Université Laval, Danish Cancer Society, George Washington University, Houston Veteran Affairs Center for Innovations in Quality, Effectiveness and Safety, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine/Mayo Clinic Arizona, NHS Foundation Trust, University of Maryland Faculty Physicians, Inc and School of Medicine, University of Montréal and others.
“The importance of building, supporting and sustaining an outlet for research in patient experience is grounded in the belief that positive patient experience is good for healthcare, it is good for the people who comprise it and it should be of greatest benefit for those who are cared for and served,” said Jason Wolf, Editor of PXJ and President of The Beryl Institute. “This latest issue of PXJ and the breadth of topics it explores reinforces that very message.”
Since its release in April 2014, articles from PXJ Volume 1 have been downloaded over 30,000 times by readers in over 80 countries, reinforcing PXJ’s broad reach and impact on the emerging field of patient experience.
