Patient and Family Engagement

The Thompson Centre is committed to continuous improvement in the quality of services. In order to continue to improve, we believe it is important to promote stronger engagement with patients and families in order to improve how we deliver care.

Patient and Family-Centered Care (PFCC) is an approach to the planning, delivery and evaluation of healthcare that is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships among patients, families and healthcare providers (Institute for Patient and Family Centered Care).
