Implementing Patient Priorities Care in your practice
Patient Priorities Care (PPC) is an approach that helps patients and clinicians focus all decision-making and healthcare on what matters most: patients’ own health priorities. Patient Priorities Care is not a new care model. Rather, it provides the tools to help patients and clinicians better do what they want to do: tailor care to what matters most to each person.
There is no one way to implement Patient Priorities Care into your practice. Keep the core principles of PPC in mind as you go:
Use this toolkit as an index to identify key resources that you and your practice need to successfully implement PPC in to your practice’s clinical decision making.

These tasks may be done by one person or multiple people (and can be done by any health professional – MD, APRN, PA, nurse, SW, pharmacy, PT, OT, etc.) . PPC should fit into your practice whichever way works best.
