Patient and family engagement at St. Michael’s

Patient and Family Advisors

Patient and Family Advisors
  • Are you a St. Michael’s patient? Or, have you been a patient or family member of a patient within the past two years?
  • Do you want to provide meaningful feedback to St. Michael’s?

Consider becoming a Patient and Family Advisor at St. Michael’s.

Patients or families like you sometimes notice things we don’t. Things like how their care is provided, and how we could be doing better.

Our goal is to put the patient at the centre of everything we do, which is why we want to partner with people like you to gain input and share ideas.

That’s why we’ve created Patient and Family Advisor volunteer positions. Patient and Family Advisors are patients working together with staff to plan, develop and act on improvements in care.

What are Patient and Family Advisors?

As a Patient and Family Advisor, you will share ideas and feedback on the patient and family experience at St. Michael’s, and generate ideas on how to improve the overall experience. This could include reviewing patient education materials, processes for delivering care and the care environment.

Who can become a Patient and Family Advisor?

If you’re a patient or family member of a patient who has received care at St. Michael’s within the past two years, and are able to voluntarily attend regular meetings, consider becoming a Patient and Family Advisor.
