Augusta University Health will be hosting the 13th annual Patient- and Family-Centered Care Conference on Thursday, Jan. 30, in the Natalie and Lansing B. Lee Jr. Auditorium.

Sue Sheridan, a nationally recognized PFCC speaker, will give the keynote address. Sheridan is a nationally renowned patient safety expert. Prior to her work at the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine, she held positions at the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services, Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and the World Health Organization. Her work to improve outcomes for patients is inspired by her own adverse family experiences in the health care system.

Those interested in attending the conference can register online. Two sessions options are available from 8-11:30 a.m. or 1-4:30 p.m. Jan. 30.

In collaboration with AU Medical Associates, Department of Pediatrics and the Medical College of Georgia, the learning will continue with Patient- and Family-Centered Care Grand Rounds from 8-9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 31, in the Lee Auditorium.
