The Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center Patient and Family Advisory Board is a group comprised of patients, family members, caregivers, and members of the cancer center care team. The board meets quarterly to share information, discuss topics of importance, and collaborate on ways to make a positive impact on patient care and the patient experience at Holden

The advisory board gives our patients and their families a voice regarding changes that occur throughout the hospital. It is a safe forum where board members can voice concerns, provide feedback, and offer suggestions that will help improve the care experience for others who rely on the cancer center for their health care needs.

Help make a difference

Our goal is to form a collaborative relationship between patients, families, and their health care team that is culturally sensitive, respectful, and compassionate.

The advisory board strives to have representatives from a variety of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and care experiences to:

  • Talk about barriers to care, treatment, and services
  • Suggest ideas and solutions that will enhance the care experience
  • Give the patient and family perspective
  • Help us better plan and educate other patients and families on support services available to them
