The PFA Community provides two collections of resources. The first collection are those found in the extensive work currently taking place in various organizations, associations and elsewhere committed to the the needs, learning and development of patient and family advisors. This list of resources will continue to grow as new offerings are discovered or created in ensuring a rich and robust information library for patient and family advisors. This list will be available to anyone in the healthcare marketplace.
The second collection features PFAC focused content from The Beryl Institute’s Learning and Professional Development extensive offerings, some of which may only be accessible to members of the Institute.
