Patient and Family Advisory Council
About the Patient and Family Advisory Council
Patient-centered care is vital to the success of any patient care initiative. Understanding the views of patients and their families is the key to achieving desired results for all stakeholders, whether patients and their families, healthcare practitioners or the community. Therefore, the Patient and Family Advisory Council aims to create an active partnership between patients and healthcare providers in the health sector to meet future aspirations.
The council consists of a group of patients or who have one of their relatives who have past experiences with healthcare services, working with the Saudi Patient Safety Center as volunteer advisors and are working on issues concerned with improving patient safety. The members of the advisory council are mediators and representatives of the Saudi Patient Safety Center across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under the supervision of the SPSC. We aspire to form Patient and Family Advisory Councils throughout the Kingdom. The first six advisory councils were established in 2019 are as follows:
