Patient and Family Advisory Councils can be a great way to start involving and listening to the people who are affected by your work. Patient and Family Advisory Councils exist in many hospitals and health care systems. In a hospital, such a group can help improve:
- patient access,
- patient safety,
- and patient care.
Patient and Family Advisory Councils can also be one way to get the input of people who are affected by our research. In research, an advisory group can help:
- Recruit participants to a study
- Make instructions or the consent process understandable
- Help share the results.
Here are our current top 5 resources for helping to develop Patient and Family Advisory Councils. Communication-friendly versions of some tools for Advisory Councils are coming here soon!
