Patient and Family Advisors

Patient and Family Advisors at Ontario Shores work in partnership with the hospital to create a truly patient and family-centred care environment and experience.

Patient and family-centred care is working “with” patients and families, rather than just doing “to” or “for” them.  It is working in partnership with patients and family members to bring their needs, perspectives, and preferences directly into decision-making, planning, delivery and evaluation of healthcare at all levels, thereby improving quality and safety.

Patient and Family Advisors will influence hospital decisions.  Patient and Family Advisors will provide the patient and family perspective across a wide-range of hospital initiatives, programs, services and policies.  Patient and Family Advisors are expected to be objective and balanced in their approach and provide the patient and/or family perspective.
