Learn from A National Study of Patient and Family Advisory Councils in U.S. Children’s Hospitals
Many children’s hospitals have a long history with Patient and Family Advisory Councils (PFACs). However, until recently, there had been no national research done about this important approach for engaging patients and families as partners in change and improvement.
From late 2019 through August 2021, the Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care (IPFCC), in collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, conducted a study exploring the prevalence and characteristics of PFACs in children’s hospitals as well as factors contributing to their effectiveness. Because of the timing of the study, it also incorporated questions about how PFACs were impacted by and responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Whether you have a well-established PFAC or are in the process of developing or expanding one, join us for this important webinar to learn information gained from the study and strengthen the future of PFACs and PFAs in your organization!
The study and the webinar are supported by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health, Palo Alto, CA .
