FAMILY-CENTERED PATIENT ADVOCACY TRAINING
Call if you would like to schedule a program in your community.
Why become a family-centered patient advocate?
Patients who are injured, sick, in need of surgery or
a medical procedure, or just have ailing bodies 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
• Reducing patient re-admissions
