Radiation Oncology

Patient & Family Advisory Council

In the Department of Radiation Oncology, the mission of our Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is to help ensure the highest level of patient care possible for our patients, to better understand the true patient experience, and to continue building within the practice where every decision is made in the best interest of our patients and their families. By partnering together, we can turn our shared experiences into organizational initiatives for the betterment of our patients.

To be a member of the PFAC, we ask that you or your family member is one year post treatment. Members must commit to a two-year term and attend quarterly meetings held in-person in one of the clinic’s conference rooms.

Examples of PFAC involvement include:

  • Identifying gaps in the patient experience
  • Supporting patients and their families in becoming informed advocates for their care
  • Initiating ideas for policies, programs, projects, and services within the patient care environment
  • Providing ongoing opportunities to hear the voices, experiences, and perspectives of patients and their families
  • Reviewing education materials, including website and acute care clinic marketing materials
