Getting involved: client and family centred care

Share your experience | Make a difference | Help other families

Client and family centred care (CFCC) is one of Holland Bloorview’s core values and we are committed to a family centred approach in all we do. At the core of CFCC is the Family Leadership Program (FLP). The FLP creates partnerships with families so that their unique wants, needs and preferences are included in all areas of program planning, delivery and evaluation at Holland Bloorview and the Bloorview Research Institute. 

The program was formalized in 2011 and now consists of 150+ volunteer family leaders who sit on 55+ special projects and committees internally and externally (as of 2015). Family leaders also provide one on one peer support and teach at new staff orientation, educate students and speak at conferences globally.
