Abstract

Surveys and interviews were undertaken in Ontario, Canada, with healthcare staff, patients, caregivers and family members to evaluate the adoption and effectiveness of the experience-based co-design (EBCD) approach. EBCD combines patient and staff experiences to identify opportunities for healthcare improvement. Participants reported that EBCD was an effective form of improving experience. Implementation barriers included time, human resources and funding. Suggestions for increased EBCD utilization included funding, training, promotion of success stories, leadership and greater participant involvement. EBCD can be an effective method of identifying and transforming how healthcare services are delivered to improve the patient, caregiver and family experience.
