Patient Family Advisory Council

Sun Country Health Region has established its first Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC). This group meets monthly, with ten active patient family advisers and seven staff advisors.

The Region is still recruiting patient family advisers for the group.

Patients and their families can enhance the quality and safety of health care, partnering with health care professionals and other staff to share stories of their experience in health care facilities and how they felt it could have be improved.

Patient family advisers serve on regional committees, working groups, as well as Rapid Process Improvement Workshops and other Lean initiatives.

Advisers are team players. After learning and understanding the purpose of these work groups, advisers can greatly contribute to the teams, providing a viewpoint from the patient and family perspective.

PFCC = “Patient-Family-Centred-Care”

PFAC= “Patient-Family Advisory Council”

PFCC is a philosophy  of care towards patients and their family members – a “partnership”

PFAC is a group of Patient-Family Advisors on a council, to work towards expressing the voice of the patient and family.  They represent patients and families.
