Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC)

​What is a Patient and Family Advisory Council? (PFAC)

  • A group that meet monthly for collaboration between staff and advisors on program decisions to improve patient-centred care.
  • It is not a support group, grievance committee, staff meeting, or presentation forum.
  • Advisory councils:
    • Identify opportunities for improving the patient and family experience
    • Advise on policies and practices to support patient and family engagement
    • Recommend how to better measure, quantify, and evaluate patient and family engagement.

What is the Role of a PFAC member?

Specific roles of council members may include: serving as a sounding board for new initiatives; generating ideas; sharing best practices; planning and evaluating programs; and providing input on institutional policies, programs, and practices.
