Patient Advisory Group

A Patient Advisory Group provides an opportunity for patients to have a voice in decisions that affect how they receive care. This is a setting for patients to engage in discussion and provide ideas how a patient may influence patient centered care at the Full Circle Health. 

Applications are currently being accepted! 

Our Patient Advisory Group consists of current patients and/or their family members and staff, who work together to strengthen partnerships between patients, families, and the healthcare community. It also represents a diverse population of age, gender and cultural backgrounds. Together, we listen, communicate, plan and develop responsive services. No specific background or experience is required, but please review the “Selection Criteria” prior to submitting your application.

Why should I serve?

  • Gain an opportunity to help others, share what you have learned,
  • A positive attitude and ability to share and see many different points of view.
  • Good listening skills.
  • Enthusiasm for Full Circle Health’s mission of excellence in patient care, education, and family advocacy.
  • Ability to share both positive and negative experiences in a constructive way.
  • Ability to communicate and work with families and staff whose backgrounds, experiences and styles may be very different from your own.

Your contributions will:

  • Influence the direction of activities, services, and policies. Your opinion matters. You can help shape how services or policies evolve and improve.
  • Learn more about programs that may benefit you, your family members and other patients.
  • Assist families in locating and utilizing services and programs.
  • Learn or strengthen skills that help you in your present job or help you get a better one. Your experience with the group could strengthen your resume.
