Citizen Engagement Committee
CFN values the meaningful involvement of citizens – patients, and their family members and informal caregivers, as well as the general public – in research, policy and program development; from agenda setting and planning to decision making, implementation and review. Evidence suggests that when citizens are engaged in health care decision making, the patient experience is improved; contributing to more cost-effective health services and enhancing the overall quality of Canada’s health care system.
The Citizen Engagement Committee (CEC) is a group of individuals within the CFN Network community who collaborate with CFN on improving care for older Canadians living with frailty, their families and caregivers through citizen/public engagement.
The mandate of the CEC is to assist CFN in ensuring patients, family caregivers and the broader community are involved in CFN strategic and operations planning, and in improving the patient and family experience in the work it undertakes and funds.
