Patient-Driven Values in Healthcare Evaluation (PAVE) works to educate patient communities and disseminate patient-driven value elements.
Working with our patient and community partners, PAVE aims to:
- Expand minority and underserved patient populations' capacity to engage in value assessment.
- Ensure framework developers/assessors are skilled in patient engagement.
- Expand available training from introductory to intermediate and advanced levels.
Watch this short video to hear Wendy Camelo Castillo, MD, MSc, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research and Hispanic patient engagement core lead, discuss the importance of incorporating patient perspectives and values from minority communities in value assessments in health care.
With permission from our partner organization, the National Health Council (NHC), PAVE shares the following educational resource for health care professionals interested in learning more about patient-centered care.
