Engaging the Patient Voice
Patient & Family Partnership Council (PFPC): Who We Are
Patients and their care partners are at the center of the KHI mission. The PFPC is a tangible representation of that commitment.
By providing a channel for patients to get involved in advising and making recommendations on priorities and projects, they are able to influence innovation in the kidney community and ensure the patient voice is heard in the development of clinical trials and development of new treatments.
To further patient involvement in KHI, the PFPC works closely with the Board of Directors and staff to advise and make recommendations on member project proposals, projects and overall efforts so that the patient's voice, experience and involvement is meaningful and effective. The PFPC is comprised of up to 10 members who are patients, families, care partners and/or patient organization staff and faculty.
