Enhancing Patient Engagement in Healthcare
Patient-centered care is a vital aspect of quality practice in modern healthcare. Affording
patients the tittle participant recognition inpatient care is one way of empowering them to
perform optimally towards achieving better health. It is, therefore, our role as advanced practice
nurses to promote patients’ engagement and participation in their care as we make them a part of
our team. This essay seeks to describe and discuss the importance of consumer or patient
engagement, consumer and family involvement, the use of informatics and system technologies,
and how nursing standards and essentials apply to this practice.

system to a collaborative one. Since patients have distinctive personal perspectives on health in
terms of their preferences, values, and prior experience, engaging them will result in the
provision of additional significant information to healthcare providers that can improve their
decision-making, adherence to therapy, and general outcomes (Seckman, 2023). Additionally, a
relationship of trust results in higher patient satisfaction, the improvement of health-related
behavior, and increased self-management.
