You’re Invited to Shape the Future of Cancer Care
An exciting opportunity exists at The Nebraska Medical Center for cancer survivors, families and caregivers to shape the future of cancer care.
The Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC) provides a forum where adult cancer patients, their caregivers and families feel comfortable providing feedback related to cancer treatment experiences. Members of the council influence the development and improvement of cancer related services at The Nebraska Medical Center.
The main goal of PFAC is to ensure cancer care and collaboration between caregivers, families and patients at The Nebraska Medical Center exceeds expectations.
Together the council works to address patient, caregiver and family concerns promptly and effectively. The medical center values the input from council members when developing new cancer related services, programs and even facility design.
As the hospital moves forward in planning and designing the new cancer center there will be many opportunities for PFAC members to share their opinions and suggestions.
PFAC membership application is available to anyone in the metro area who has either received cancer treatment, is a family member of a patient or taken on the role of a caregiver for an oncology patient within the past three years.
Requirements for serving on the council will equate to volunteering about 5 hours of time each month. Members are asked to attend meetings, respond with feedback to emails and letters from moderators and participate in cancer center planning activities.
To be considered for membership on the Patient Family Advisory Council please download, print and fill out the membership application. You may choose to return the completed application by email or standard post.
