Involving patients and families as partners in their care is an essential component of patient-centered care. However, the lack of evidence-based guidance on how to support patient and family engagement has been a barrier to its widespread adoption. In this presentation, we offer guidance on several best practices for engaging patients and families in their care, emphasizing an interprofessional approach to engagement. This guidance is based on the results of an exhaustive systematic review of 150 collaborative care programs for common mental disorders, as well as a review of recent Canadian and international clinical practice guidelines. The presentation will address the current state of involvement of patients and families in mental health care, describe practical team-based approaches to patient and family engagement, and include an interactive discussion of implementation issues.
