Partnering With a Patient and Family Advisory Council to Improve Patient Care Experiences With Pain Management



Partnering With a Patient and Family Advisory Council to Improve Patient Care Experiences With Pain Management



Journal of Nursing Administration 46(4): 181-186



Patient-centered care is a key driver for the nation's health system, yet patient experience surveys indicate that hospitals are far from achieving favorable outcomes. Partnering with patients and families through a patient and family advisory council (PFAC) advances the practice of patient-centered care to improve outcomes and experiences. This article describes the process of implementing a PFAC and presents outcomes related to patients' perception of pain management in the acute care hospital setting.
