I am a Patient or Family Advisor

I Pledge to:

  • Advocate for 24/7 family presence in all of my Advisory work
  • Advocate for welcoming treatment of families in all hospitals, facilities, healthcare clinics and offices in Alberta.
  • Educate the public to promote an understanding of how to partner in stressful situations.
  • Encourage decision makers to include both patients’ AND families’ perspectives on health improvement committees
  • Remind improvement committees about family variation. Not all families want to be included, and some families are the medical experts on the patients’ care.
  • Advocate for changes to legislation or government language that is not welcoming of family participation.
