Every year attendees look forward to hearing from the Congress Keynote speakers. This year, CF patient, author, instructor, and patient advocate, Tiffany Christensen, kicks off Congress LIVE! with a beds-eye view of respiratory care.
A patient advocate and patient experience professional, Tiffany is a life-long cystic fibrosis patient who has received two double-lung transplants and is currently receiving hemodialysis while awaiting a donor kidney.
Tiffany is Vice President for Experience Excellence at The Beryl Institute (Nashville), where she is focused on supporting the integration of patient and family perspectives, and shining a light on systemic racism in healthcare. She is also faculty for the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Patient Safety Executive Development and Chief Quality Officer Programs, and a member of several boards dedicated to bridging the gap between healthcare policy and the lived experience of patients.
Tiffany has authored three books exploring advocacy, end-of-life planning and partnership strategies in healthcare. A TeamSTEPPS Master Trainer and a Respecting Choices Advance Care Planning Instructor, she has previously worked in patient advocacy and engagement at Duke University Hospital (Durham) and the North Carolina Hospital Association.
