Become a Patient and Family Advisor

What is a patient and family advisor?

A patient and family advisor is someone who:
• Wants to help improve the quality of care for all patients and family members.
• Gives feedback based on your own experiences as a patient or family member.
• Helps us plan changes to improve how we take care of patients.
• Works with us for short- and long-term commitments, depending on the project.
• Volunteer your time typically (usually at least 1 hour and not more than 4 hours per quarter).

Patient and family advisors provide a voice that represents patients and families of patients who receive care at Henderson Health Care. You partner with doctors, nurses, and administrators to help improve the quality of care for all patients and family members.

Why should you become a patient and family advisor?

When you or your family member were here, did you think there were things we could have done better?
Do you have ideas about how to make sure other patients and families get the best care possible?
At Henderson Health Care, patient and family advisors give us feedback and ideas to help us improve the quality and safety of care we provide.
