Partners in Healing experience published

In this research letter in Chest, we report the experience with Intermountain’s Partners in Healing project, by which family members were encouraged to participate in bedside care of cardiothoracic surgery patients. Participation in the program was associated with satisfaction for participants and a lower risk of rehospitalization after an ED visit after discharge.
