|We have received several questions about the status of Patient Experience Week 2020 given the current healthcare crisis. We will formally keep PX Week as planned on April 27 – May 1 when The Beryl Institute will kick-off our Virtual Patient Experience Conference 2020, introduce new resources and offer a focused time to celebrate the incredible efforts of our community to elevate the human experience.
However, we encourage you to choose the most appropriate time for your organization to recognize PX Week, whether that is in April or later in 2020. Our ultimate hope is that PX Week provides a focused time for your organization to celebrate accomplishments, re-energize efforts and honor the people who impact patient experience everyday. The resources available through our website are accessible year-round to offer ideas and inspiration to support planning when you are ready.
Patient Experience Week is an annual event to celebrate healthcare staff impacting patient experience everyday. Inspired by members of the Institute community, PX Week provides a focused time for organizations to celebrate accomplishments,
re-energize efforts and honor the people who impact patient experience everyday. From nurses and physicians, to support staff and executive professionals, to patients, families and communities served, the Institute hopes to bring together healthcare organizations across the globe to observe PX Week.
Why Participate in Patient Experience Week?
By supporting Patient Experience Week, you are showing your employees that you appreciate their hard work and encourage their continued efforts on behalf of patients. This week is a great way to enhance patient and staff relations, increase hospital morale and improve communication.
How Can We Celebrate Patient Experience Week?
The possibilities are endless and there is no one way to celebrate. No matter how you choose to celebrate, whether you plan a week-long celebration or just a day, take advantage of the Patient Experience resources to make the most of your event.

How Can The Beryl Institute help?
The Beryl Institute has created a list of resources
to assist you with planning a recognition program with suggestions for activities you can implement and offers a list of audiences you should remember during your celebration. You can also purchase a variety of products for use throughout the week and
entire year as recognition gifts and reminders of your patient experience efforts.
We encourage you to share this information with members of your staff so everyone can be an active participant in the planning and implementation process. Remember, this information is meant only as a guide for your promotional activities, so feel free to add your own ideas to develop the perfect week for your staff.
