Community Conversations

Thursday, June 8, 2023 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM ET

Establishing, Revitalizing and Rebuilding PFAs and PFACs

We invite members of The Beryl Institute to join an adapted co-design process to identify opportunities and needed resources for addressing the (re)engagement of Patient and Family Advisors (PFAs) and Patient and Family Advisory Councils (PFACs) in your organizations.

Participants should come prepared to discuss: 

  • What are the opportunities and challenges that you are facing as it pertains to PFAs/PFACs?
  • What specific needs exist in working to address these opportunities and challenges? 

This community conversation was inspired by the work of the Institute's Global Patient & Family Advisory Board, PXPF Patient & Family Partnership Workgroup and was sparked by community PX Chats. This initial session will help inform a pathway forward for ongoing conversation and community support.
