The Patient/Family Advisory Committee (PFAC) was formed in 2008 with the goal of incorporating the patient and family's perspective into the design and evaluation of Edward processes, services, environment, equipment and patient communication. The commitee includes Edward patients, family members of Edward patients and Edward employees.
Membership on the committee requires attendance at monthly meetings with the opportunity to participate in other committees of the member's choice. To keep the committee's perspective fresh, members are limited to two-year terms.
