Application for Family Advisory Network (FAN)
What is the Family Advisory Network?
This committee is based on the belief that often the most informed voices on the health care team are those of the families. As a family advisor, you will partner with other family members, health care providers, and staff to help make improvements to the patient experience.
We are looking for volunteers who have a child that has received care at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR) over the past two years.
We need people like you who are willing to:
- Attend monthly meetings
- Commit to serving a term of 1 to 2 years
- Share personal experiences in a constructive manner
- Listen and hear multiple points of view
- Demonstrate compassion, understanding, and a sense of humor
- Maintain confidentiality
- Be sensitive to the diverse patient population we serve at CHoR
- Work collaboratively and enthusiastically
Thank you for your interest in serving on Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU's Family Advisory Network (CHoR FAN). You've trusted us with your child's care, so here's an opportunity to make a lasting impact on the pediatric health care experience for all children and families.
All applications will be reviewed, and you may be contacted for an interview. To be eligible to serve as an advisor your child must have been treated at CHoR either as a patient in the hospital or in an outpatient clinic within the past two years. If you're selected to be an advisor, you'll be considered a volunteer of CHoR. This will require that you agree to protecting patient confidentiality and submit to a background check before serving.
