-Collaboration: Individuals, families, health care practitioners, and health care leaders collaborate in policy and program development, implementation, and evaluation; in facility design; in professional education; and in research; as well as in the delivery of care and have made a change to how patients, residents, clients, their families, and communities experience healthcare services.
