Family Advisory Council Application
The Family Advisory Council at All Children's Hospital welcomes applications for new members.
Our Family Advisory Council is a group of parents and teen patients who meet with hospital staff to help promote patient- and family-centered care. The Council provides positive and constructive feedback on the patient experience. Council members also help support sensitivity to the emotional, cultural and spiritual needs of our families and patients.
Members include parents and teen patients (age 13-18) who have experience with a variety of children's health conditions and the inpatient and/or outpatient areas at All Children's Hospital.
The Council has 9 dinner meetings a year, held Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hospital. There are no meetings in December, July and August. Members serve a two-year term. Sometimes there are additional events (such as a panel discussion during Nurses Week) that Council members are invited to attend. We welcome applications throughout the year.
Members are expected to attend the 9 monthly meetings, be an advocate for positive change, actively participate and listen to others, and attend a mandatory new member training session.
