Patient and Family Advisory Council Award 2022

About The PFAC  

The Champlain Regional Cancer Program Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is a group of individuals who have been affected by cancer who meet regularly to provide reasonable, valuable, and insightful suggestions and recommendations to the Champlain Regional Cancer Program.  The primary purpose of the PFAC is to ensure the voice of the patient and family is brought into the decision-making process with the goal of improving cancer care service delivery and ultimately, the patient and family experience with cancer care. 

The Award 

The Champlain Regional Cancer Program PFAC Award acknowledges initiatives that have improved some aspect of patient and family-centred cancer care service and delivery.  It will recognize health-care providers, support staff, administrators, volunteers or teams who have implemented an initiative that has directly or indirectly enhanced the patient and family experience with cancer care. 

All applicants will receive notification of PFAC’s decision.  Winners will receive a plaque and be publicly acknowledged by the PFAC for the difference they have made in the lives of people affected by cancer.
