The traditional culture in medicine is evolving to include patients
and family members as equal and critical members of the patient's the
healthcare team. The Stanford Cancer Institute takes this partnership
seriously, working hand-in-hand with our patient and family community
to improve patient and staff satisfaction, while improving health
outcomes for patients.
In January of 2012, the Cancer Institute established the Cancer
Center Patient Advisory Council (CCPAC), a formal partnership between
patients, family members, staff and administrators. The CCPAC meets
twice a month, incorporating the voices of patients, contributing to
policies, processes, programs and facility design. The Council is well
positioned to play a crucial role in the development of the
Transformational Model of Care for patients and families at the Cancer Center.
