What is PFE Best Practice 5?
Hospitals are required to have at least one active Person and Family Engagement Committee, Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC), or other committee (e.g., Patient Safety) with full membership positions for patient or family representatives.
The series has two major components (1) the PFAC Planning Tool which includes tools and activities that your hospital can use to create and sustain a Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC); (2) six pre-recorded learning modules of the Creating and Sustaining a Patient and Family Advisory Council to Improve Patient Safety and Enhance Quality Improvement.
