Network Patient Representative Program (NPR)
WHAT IS THE NPR PROGRAM?
Dynamic patients make up the NPR program, and they volunteer in their facilities to work with staff toward fostering a positive environment in their facility. An NPR is a patient in the facility who actively promotes patient education and well-being by maintaining a patient bulletin board that promotes patient and staff educational materials and activities. Working closely with facility staff, the NPRs may also coordinate other patient and staff activities in their facility. Look for your NPR bulletin board today!
If you are a patient interested in becoming an NPR, talk to your facility staff about contacting the Network.
If you are a facility staff member who would like to recommend an NPR for the program, contact the NPR Coordinator or Communications Director to set up an orientation call.
