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

making.

Family Centered Patient Advocacy Training will prepare

you to be an advocate for one person or the whole family.

Topics include:
• 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

Participants who take this training will have on-going access to the instructors to assist in decision making and support for at least one year. Anyone who takes this training may also register for future trainings for up to two years as a refresher at a reduced fee, if space allows.

- Registration is required, no walk-ins.
- Group rates are available.
- We will design training specifically for the people you serve.
