  • Patient and Family Advisory Councils

    PFAC collage

    The Patient and Family Advisory Councils (PFACs) at Dana-Farber include patients, family members, and staff. There are separate councils for adult care (Patient and Family Advisory Council, or PFAC) and pediatric care (Pediatric Patient and Family Advisory Council, or PPFAC).

    Both councils represent Dana-Farber's commitment to patient- and family-centered care by including the following core principles in all discussions and projects:

    • Dignity and respect
    • Information sharing
    • Participation
    • Collaboration

    • To offer a patient and family voice
    • To initiate ideas for policies, programs, projects, and services within the patient care environment
    • To provide ongoing opportunities to hear the voices, experiences, and perspectives of patients and their families
