Family Matters - Spring 2009
Looking for Parents to Participate
It has been a year since the Children’s Cancer Hospital began incorporating family-centered care into our culture. During that time, I have had the privilege of being the parent coordinator and observing, first hand, our accomplishments and our challenges. Not only do we have a Family Advisory Council consisting of 12 parents and 12 staff members, we also have parents helping us design our new pediatric spaces, interviewing new employee candidates and offering special insight into the care and services as families face end-of-life issues.
Are you interested in being more involved in the Children’s Cancer Hospital? Do you have time that you could devote to a committee, task force or project? We are looking for family members to become actively involved in current and future initiatives.
Please contact me if you would like more information about these exciting opportunities. I look forward to hearing from you.
