FAMILY CENTERED PATIENT ADVOCACY TRAINING
Call if you would like to schedule a program in your community.
Why become a family centered patient advocate?
A patient who is injured, sick, in need of surgery,
a medical procedure or just has an ailing body may
not be in a position to be active in their care and they
may need to focus all their energy on getting well.
For this reason an advocate or “helper” is crucial
to the patient's care. But what exactly does an
advocate do? Who would make a good advocate?
The person who loves the patient most may not be
the best advocate. His or her emotions may get in
the way of good communication and clear decision
Family Centered Patient Advocacy Training will prepare
you to be an advocate for one person or the whole family.
• Communication skills
• History of patient safety
• Reduce patient re-admissions
• Help reduce the possibility of injury from falls, infection, medication errors and much, much more
