About Leadership Resources Institute Membership

The Patient and Family Advisors (PFA) Community serves as a gathering place for individuals focused on strengthening the voices of patients and families across the healthcare continuum. As both a place to connect with others and share and/or gather ideas, the community is primarily committed to provide a linkage to extensive leading edge work taking place today to drive stronger patient and family engagement, increase the focus on patient and family centeredness and positively involve patient voice.

The Patient and Family Advisors Community:

  • Serves as a hub and access point for related and relevant resources, tools and education related to the roles of patient and family advisors. This reinforces the community philosophy to serve as a connector of existing resources versus a primary creator of content

  • Provides a dynamic collaborative space for ongoing peer-to-peer dialogue, the sharing of ideas and proven practices and a place to turn to for support and guidance

  • Engages participants in the work of The Beryl Institute, as it looks to shape and influence the broader conversation on the patient experience in healthcare

Key Components


The PFA Community works to provide two collections of resources. First, those found in the extensive work currently taking place in various organizations, associations and elsewhere committed to 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 is available to anyone in the healthcare marketplace.

Second, resources are available from The Beryl Institute’s Learning & Professional Development extensive offerings, some of which may only be accessible to members of the Institute includes a Patient and Family Advisors Listserv and may include focused content in the following formats:


    To support the community in maintaining an ongoing and interactive opportunity for connection, a PFA Listserv is offered for members of the community and The Beryl Institute.

This will be an opportunity to come together in person to connect, engage and learn from one another directly as well as build lasting connections to support you in your ongoing work.
