HRET HIIN PFE Fundamentals: Session # 4 PFAs: We Got Them! Now what?

Webinar: June 20, 2017 11:00am - 12:00pm (CST)

Whether it is your very first meeting with a brand new PFAC, or the 100th with a well-seasoned PFAC, it is important to take the time to prepare meetings and innovate engagement. Early meetings may benefit from presentations, such as getting to know leadership, an overview of a process or bringing the council a question or material to review. These presentations help to build a sense of community while educating your PFAC members. As the PFAC or PFE structure matures, there are opportunities to prepare PFAs on health care committees or workgroups. This session will focus on all the different structures that can be used to engage PFAs, discuss projects in which a PFA can be involved and how to manage feedback.
