Shared accountability in the care of patients with chronic heart failure acknowledges that effective care depends on the collective efforts of an array of stakeholders, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, case managers, social workers, and of course the patients themselves. Collaboration and communication among these stakeholders can be essential tools in navigating transitions of care, tackling readmission rates, and generally optimizing patient engagement, quality of life, and outcomes. In this myCME™ Town Wall, a multifaceted faculty panel addresses the whys and hows of shared accountability that engages patients as well as healthcare professionals.
