University Hospital Patient, Family, Staff and Faculty Advisory Council (UH-PFSAC)

Initiated in 2013, faculty, staff and patients developed and implemented a Patient, Family, Staff and Faculty Advisory Council (PFSAC). The PFSAC functions as a working committee. Acting as a primary voice for patients and families, they work in partnership with senior clinicians, administrators, staff, and student members dedicated to the principles and philosophy of patient and family-centered care.
