Are you trying to start a Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) or set up a new PFAC for success? If so, we encourages you to listen to the 3-part PFE Learning Event series on how to implement a patient and family advisory council or patient representatives on hospital committee presented by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
This 3-part learning series is designed to help hospitals bring together and support patient and family advisors (PFAs) in effective PFACs. The first event, held April 12, focused on assessing readiness and building the foundation for a PFAC.
Webinar Part 1

Presenters also share experiences in creating PFACs in organizations and key lessons learned.
