Resources & Accomplishments

Patient and Family Advisory Councils

Our Patient and Family Advisory Councils work as a team to promote positive change throughout the Phoenix Children’s network. Here are some of our recent notable accomplishments:

PFAC Year-End Virtual Meeting

In December 2020, Phoenix Children’s stakeholders from the various PFACs — patients, families, administrators and physicians - had come together as our CEO, Bob Meyer, addressed the group to close out the year in celebration for all that these members had accomplished.

Family Community Resource Guides

Our Patient and Family Advisory Councils continue to develop resource guides for families based on their immediate and future needs which can be found on our website:

  • Mental Health Resource Guide
  • Wellness Resource
  • Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) Resource Guide

Other Projects

PFAC Resources & Accomplishments

The Heart Center Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) recommended an “extra curtain” in the CVICU patient room to allow a private space for the parent/guardian.

CAB's Colorful Hallway

The Children’s Advisory Board recommended a more “friendly, colorful” hallway in our south connector which is used to transport patients and their families to procedures and treatments. This project is currently underway!

Just Breathe Badges

The Cystic Fibrosis PFAC designed and implemented “Just Breathe” purple badges, which may be requested upon entrance to the hospital. This badge indicates to another CF family that a person within their group is living with CF.

Parent-to-Parent Tips

Patient and Family Advisory Council members created “parent-to-parent” tips on preparing for outpatient clinic visits.
