Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) July 10, 2013
The Beryl Institute introduces its Global Patient and Family Advisory Council (GPFAC) which will provide guidance and input on the strategic direction of the Institute. The GPFAC will ensure the voices of patients and families are a central consideration in the Institute’s patient experience improvement efforts and resources.
The GPFAC is comprised of 14 patient and family members across five countries who exemplify a commitment to elevating the conversation on patient experience in their organizations and/or communities.
“At the Institute we believe the patient and family voice is a critical component of the patient experience discussion,” said Jason Wolf, President, The Beryl Institute. “The global council will play a central role in guiding our work, providing broad perspective and important considerations as we continue to offer leading resources and solutions to the patient experience community.”
Complementing the Institute’s existing Executive and Advisory boards, the GPFAC will review the Institute’s areas of focus and current resources and offer suggestions on new opportunities and topics of interest to ensure the perspective of the patient is part of all Institute efforts.
