Upcoming Programs & Events

A Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC)

Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Trauma Services and Acute Care Surgery are developing A ‘Patient and Family Advisory Council’ (PFAC). The council is primarily for trauma patients, families and members of the healthcare team to provide guidance on how to improve the patient and family experience. The PFAC will be a force for the advancement of the best patient and family centered model of Trauma Service. As part of this PFAC process, trauma patients and families are invited to serve on hospital committees to ensure that the consumer’s point of view, perspective, and experience are not only heard, but also integrated into the service and quality improvements that are engineered to ensure high-quality, customer-centered care. Through their unique perspectives, PFAC members give input on issues that impact care, ensuring the best care for every patient and their family members. If you have been a Trauma patient or a family member of a Trauma patient at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and would like to be a part of the PFAC, please contact Becky Fleming for more information: or 314-273-9175 Learn more
