Patient engagement, which involves incorporating the patient and family as partners in their care, is a growing focus in otolaryngology and surgery. Attention to patient and family centeredness, shared decision making, and patient experience together improves the overall tenor of patient engagement. Patient engagement promotes safety through improving quality of electronic health record data, error detection, and treatment decisions and adherence. In this article, we review specific areas of importance for patient engagement in otolaryngology as well as areas needing more research and development.
