Marshfield Children’s seeking applicants for new Parent and Family Advisory Council

​​​​​June 10, 2021

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield Children's is seeking applicants from across Wisconsin to join its newly established Parent and Family Advisory Council (PFAC).

The pediatric council is based on the idea that our providers and health care teams are only able to provide the best health care possible by listening to feedback and opinions of the patients and families we serve. The PFAC is made up of volunteer parents or loved ones who are part of a child's care team. Their first-hand experience gives us invaluable insight and a unique perspective on opportunities that exist within our health system to better serve our younger patients. 

“Members of our PFAC will help Marshfield Children's improve how our providers and health care teams interact with each child or teen who comes through our doors," said Nancy Stueland-Adamski, director of Patient Experience. “From how our patient rooms and facilities are designed to how our educational handouts are created, the focus is on putting patients and families first."

When attending a PFAC meeting, our council members help in many ways. They may be asked to share their loved one's health care journey with doctors or identify areas of improvement that can help ensure our young patients have a voice in key decisions.

PFAC members will serve a two-year term and meet virtually for one-hour meetings four to six times per year. Our PFAC includes representatives from system leaders, providers and staff.
