The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) is currently recruiting individuals who have been patients or caregivers of patients to join its Community and Patient Advisory Council (CPAC). You are invited to consider this exciting opportunity to work with us to elevate the patient experience and further advance the commitment to patient-centred care.
As a member of TSH’s CPAC, you would be joining other patients, family members, and community residents where you will have the opportunity to:
- partner with health care providers/administrators and provide your input and perspectives on hospital initiatives related to improving the patient care experience;
- to provide advice to the President and CEO, administration, and the Board of Directors regarding current and emerging issues facing the hospital; and
- to communicate hospital initiatives back to the communities and organizations that you represent.
CPAC members bring the ‘voice’ of both the community and the patient/caregiver to the table.
As the ‘community voice’, you will serve as a communication liaison between TSH and the community, provide input into the hospital’s community engagement strategy, provide input to hospital administration and the Board of Directors on budgetary matters that materially impact patient services or access to care, and more.
As the ‘patient/caregiver voice’, you will have the opportunity to participate in initiatives that bring topical and relevant health care issues to the Scarborough community through formal public forums, as well as initiatives that relate to the hospital’s strategic direction of “Patients as Partners”, which is aimed at improving the patient and family experience in care delivery.
By working together and learning from each other, we can ensure better outcomes for our patients and their families. This is a unique opportunity to help shape the way health care is delivered in Scarborough.
