Be Ready - Help Family and Friends!

Patients may not be in a position to be active in their care and they may need to focus all their energy on getting well.

An advocate is crucial to the patient's care. But what exactly does an advocate do? Who would make a good patient safety advocate?

The person who loves the patient most may not be the best advocate. His or her emotions may get in the way of good communication and helping in clear decision making.

Family-Centered Patient Advocacy Training will help prepare participants to be a patient safety advocate for one person or the whole family!  Classes on Long Island since 2006.

About Pulse and Our Program
To date we have trained hundreds of people in small groups to become Family Centered Patient Advocates.

"Everyone should take the advocacy training.  It prepared me in helping my loved ones to understand that they need to take charge when it comes to navigating the healthcare system and the importance of awareness of patient safety in controlling the quality of their care."                                              Chira B.


"PULSE's Patient Advocacy Training provided an exceptional learning experience!  The experts packed each session with great insights and fun exercises to anchor the information.  Using the knowledge and tools developed in the class, I was amazed at how quickly my advocacy skills improved!  This is "must have" training for anyone committed to becoming an effective patient advocate!"                                                                                                                    David F.


"Nearly everyone starts as a patient and ends as a patient.  In between, we may be called on to be advocates for friends and family members, or to find an advocate who can speak for us.  As a FCPA participant, I learned how to help others navigate the healthcare system and how best to support their healthcare goals.  The skills I learned helped me facilitate important conversations within my own family, and to help my own parents when they needed someone to advocate on their behalf.  I highly recommend this training!"                                                                                                                                    Sima M.
