Patient Engagement Learning and Action Network (PE LAN)

Purpose


The patient voice is needed in the activities of the Network and the renal community as a whole. A beneficiary and family centered care Learning Action Network (LAN) is an approach used to promote patient and family involvement at the Network level. It is an essential part of promoting beneficiary and family engagement to improve quality of care.

LANs create large-scale improvement around a given aim and manage knowledge as a valuable resource. They engage leaders around an action-based agenda. LANs create opportunities for in-depth learning and problem solving.   They also create an opportunity for communities, with assistance and guidance from the ESRD Network, to harness the knowledge, skills, and abilities of community partners to create change around a common aim(s).
