CFAN 2015 in Quebec City!

We are so excited about this year's Canadian Family Advisory Network (CFAN) Symposium on Sunday, October 18, in Quebec City.

We will provide participants with an engaging and thought-provoking journey through two highly relevant topics in today's family-centred care climate.  In the morning, we will explore some of the finest peer support programs and talk candidly about the opportunities and challenges of establishing these important networks.  You will hear from peer mentors and administrators about different models, and leave with tangible tips to enhance or start your own program. 

In the afternoon, we will switch gears and discuss the ever-important topic of engaging children, youth and families in research. From topic development to active involvement, participants will learn from champions of research, and from each other, about how to engage this very important stakeholder group.  This day will be one of sharing, open discourse and networking between patient advisors, clinicians, administrators, researchers and others.  We hope to see you in Quebec City!

You can register on CAPHC's website; if you are a family advisor or family representative, there is no cost to you for the one day CFAN Symposium. Simply email kate.robson@sunnybrook.ca and request a CFAN code.
