A new step-by-step framework and guide is helping providers integrate diagnosis and management of behavioral and mental health conditions into even small and mid-size primary care practices; it's a growing priority, and one that UHF has been helping bring to fruition. Also in this issue: Jim Tallon explores the challenges of defining and fully implementing "patient engagement"; how two grantees are engaging hospitals in promoting better partnerships with family caregivers; further advances in hospital quality and patient safety through Clinical Quality Fellowship Program capstone projects; a new toolkit for home care providers, aimed at reducing the risk of life-threatening central line–associated bloodstream infections; UHF's annual salute to outstanding hospital trustees; and much more.
