Patient Experience

Patient & Family Advisory Group

The Alberta Health Services (AHS) Patient and Family Advisory Group (PFG) was formed in late 2010 and is currently made up of 30 volunteer members from across the province with a variety of backgrounds and experiences.

The advisors meet monthly, with a summer break, to provide input on various AHS strategic goals and initiatives. This is achieved through a partnership with patients and families to improve quality, safety, and the patient experience leading to a transformation of the health care system in Alberta. Consultations may be one-time sessions or be a longer-term relationship, depending on the scope of the initiative.
