Patient Priorities Care




A Research Agenda for Translating Disease Specific Care to Patient Goals-Directed Care for People with Multiple Chronic Conditions

Five key stakeholder organizations,  Patient Family Centered Care Partners (PFCCpartners), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American College of Physicians (ACP), the American Geriatrics Society (AGS), and the JAHF, are partnering with the research team that is developing the Carealign approach with the goal of convening patients, caregivers, clinicians, researchers and other stakeholders, to investigate, articulate, and develop a way to address the array of research questions associated with aligned, patient goals-directed care, particularly how to translate disease specific care into care directed by the goals and preferences of patients. This Carealign collaborative plans a series of workshops, webinars and conferences over 2 years.

Libby Hoy, PFCCpartners will serve as Co Principal Investigator on this project beginning in January 2016.


Vision Statement:

To change the culture of healthcare for older adults with multiple chronic conditions so that care is aligned with their health outcome goals and priorities.


Are you interested in joining the conversation?  

The research team is actively engaging the senior population and their caregivers to inform the research agenda.  What is most important to you in priority directed care?  Is that term meaningful to you?  How do trade offs and complexity of care impact care decisions?  To join the conversation, please contact Stephen ( to join the Patient Priority Research Community online.
