Members of PAN believe that
harnessing the collective power of patients and families
will transform healthcare
The Patient Advisors Network (PAN) is a community of people who have received health services or cared for those who have, and who are committed to improving healthcare as advisors for the good of all across Canada. Together, we can create a greater, collective impact.
We do NOT advise patients.
Patient Advisors Network is a Canadian federally incorporated not-for-profit group. We are privately funded and look to attract funding from people and organizations that support our mandate to develop as a group of independent advisors in a community of practice.
We collaborate with healthcare providers, researchers, administrators, and policy makers to realize the following objectives:
To mobilize our experience in patient and family partnership
to ensure that applying the wisdom gained from the lived experience of patients and families becomes the norm for all aspects of healthcare.
To support and build capacity
among people working towards better healthcare experiences and outcomes, both for users and workers in healthcare.
To model accountable, open governance for a peer community
that safeguards the authenticity of the patient and family voice and its sustainability as a community.
