Establishing Patient and Family Advisory Councils
The Pediatric Patient and Family Advisory Council of Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center is a partnership of patients, family members, and professional caregivers. We are dedicated to improving hospital programs, policies, and the overall quality of cancer care provided to children, teens, and their families while in treatment and afterward.
Since its formation in the spring of 1999, the Council has worked on many initiatives, including:
Each month, the Council discusses ongoing initiatives and assigns follow-up directives. Members are required to attend the two-hour monthly meetings and to work on issues outside of Council meetings. Parent co-chairs share leadership responsibilities of the Council.
If you'd like to speak with one of our Council members, or for more information about getting involved, please call 617-632-4319 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Five to six key administrative staff members serve as voting members of the Councils. Other staff leaders are invited guests and routinely attend meetings.
