An essential element to high-quality health care is actively including the voice of patients and families to not only improve safe, quality care, but also improve the patient, staff, and physician experience.
Canadian based evidence has shown that PFACs result in: improved patient outcomes, improved safety, reduced wait times, better teamwork to coordinate care, and care providers’ job satisfaction is improved.
Patient engagement means patients and families actively working with health professionals in the design, delivery, and evaluation of health services.
