In 2013 my husband died. It was his desire to make his experience ease the next patient’s journey. During his last months of life I stayed with him 24/7 in his hospital room, and during that time I became aware of what a Patient Experience Advisor does. It is because of his journey through the medical system that I became a Patient Experience Advisor myself. Through my work as an Advisor his experience is making a difference. The many committees that I serve on are venues to explain the patient’s view of events. My presence at these meetings has always been treated with respect and with a wish to make patients and caregivers more comfortable. Changes have occurred because I was given the chance to be at the table. The decision to become a Patient Experience Advisor is the best decision I have ever made.
