“The Councils provide an ongoing and fresh perspective of what it’s like to be a patient in our care,” explains Laurie Brown, RN, chief nursing officer. “Looking at the care we provide – through our patients’ eyes – helps us see our processes and behaviors in a new light, and fosters creative solutions that may not have occurred to us without their help.”
The volunteer Councils meet once a month, November through June. Franciscan seeks members of the community who have used Franciscan services within the past three years as an inpatient, outpatient or family member. Nominees must be willing to collaborate in a team setting and offer constructive advice, attend one evening dinner meeting a month through June, and be willing to sign a confidentiality agreement. Adults of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
