240430_BP_PatientExperiencePatient Experience Week, beginning the final Monday in April, is an annual event to celebrate the tireless efforts of healthcare staff and their dedication to patient-centered care. Inspired by members of the Institute community, Patient Experience Week (PX Week) prompts healthcare organizations worldwide to recognize achievements, rejuvenate efforts, and honor those who contribute to patient well-being every single day. From physicians and nurses to executives and support staff, this week serves as a collective appreciation of everyone involved in the healthcare journey (The Beryl Institute, 2024).
