NEW Youth Transition Patient and Family Advisory Council
Advisors wanted to help improve how youth transition from the pediatric to the adult healthcare system.
The Alberta Children's Hospital is excited to announce the formation of a new youth & family advisory council focused on youth transitions!
Adolescent transition has become a priority across Alberta Health Services and ACH. There is a huge demand for the patient and family voice to help youth transition to the adult healthcare system, says Deb Thul, Transition Coordinator at ACH. This new Council will be available to consult on transition projects, programs and services.
If you are a youth, young adult or a parent of a child that has or is transitioning to adult services, we are looking for your voice. Potential members will be invited to an introductory meeting on September 26th from 7:00-9:00 PM. The Council will meet every other month on the fourth Tuesday evening.
Please share this opportunity with potential members!
Father Advisors Needed
We are looking for fathers who would like to share their healthcare experiences and knowledge by becoming a Family Advisor! Fathers have an important perspective - come and share your thoughts and ideas as part of our Family Advisory Council or provide your feedback through our Patient and Family Centred Care Network.
If you or anyone you know is interested, please email us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
