Become a patient or family advisor

The JGH needs patient and family advisors

We are committed to providing patient and family-centred care, which is dependent on our ability to communicate with those we serve. Patient and family advisors will help us understand what matters most to patients and their families when they come through our doors. 

Your perspective, feedback and advice are unique. Based on what you see, feel or hear as a patient and/or a family member, you can shape the way we provide excellent patient care. Your contribution will help to improve the quality and safety of care for all patients.

If you and/or a family member has been a patient at the JGH within the last five years, you are eligible to be a patient or family advisor.

Patient and family advisors may:

  • participate in the Patient and Family Advisory Council
  • take on public speaking to help educate others about patient and family-centred care
  • work on special hospital projects
  • attend staff orientation
