Since our inception in 1998, the Adult Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) has served as a national model for healthcare institutions. By partnering with Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center staff members regarding adult patient care,
we help improve the patient experience and ensure patient- and family-centered care.
Do you want to share your voice and experience, guide the development of projects, and shape key decisions that affect the patient care and family experience at Dana-Farber? Contact us today.
You do not need to be a member to provide your input, although new applicants are always welcome. Five to six key administrative staff members serve as voting members of the Councils. Other staff leaders are invited guests and routinely attend meetings.

commitment to helping other patients.
