Patient and Family Advisory Committee


Patients, caregivers and families are essential partners in health care.

The Champlain LHIN’s Patient Family Advisory Committee provides its collective voice to shape programs and services that improve health care for the people who live and work in Champlain.

Representing people across the region, Committee members have lived-experience in the health care system as patients, caregivers and/or family members.
