The Beryl Institute announces 52 breakout sessions and three pre-conference workshops included in Patient Experience Conference 2016, to be held April 13-15 at Sheraton Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Patient Experience Conference is the largest independent, non-provider or vendor hosted event bringing together the collective voices of healthcare leaders, staff, physicians, patients and families across the globe to convene, engage and expand the dialogue on improving patient experience.
In addition to the four previously announced keynote speakers, the 52 breakout sessions were selected from a call for submissions held in summer 2015. A record number of proposals were submitted and evaluated by The Beryl Institute’s patient experience Executive Board, Advisory Board, Global Patient and Family Advisory Council and conference planning committee. Sessions follow eight primary learning themes:
- Care Experiences
- Culture and Leadership
- Employee Engagement
- Long-Term Care
- Patient Advocacy
- Patient and Family Engagement
- Physician Engagement
Conference participants also have the opportunity to attend one of three concurrent pre-conference workshops to be held before the general conference sessions. Pre-conference topics and speakers include:
