Patient and Family Adviser: Second Conference

Over the past few years, more and more organizations have been welcoming Patient and Family Advisers (PFAs) into their organizations to sit on committees and help to advise elements of service delivery and care. On April 3rd of this year, Patients Canada held our first conference for PFAs. With our goal of increasing the patient and family voice in healthcare, we were excited to have PFAs from across Canada in one room where they could discuss their experiences as advisers, and see what they could learn from each other. Around 50 people showed up, and dozens of topics were discussed.
