What types of volunteer opportunities are available at SJGH?
I. Patient navigation (Way Finders)
As a Way Finder, you will assist patients and guests with making their way around the hospital. Way finders should assist patients and guests with locating major locations in the hospital (cafeteria, post office, pharmacy, etc.), light computer work, and clerical duties as needed and other duties as assigned.
II. Patient and family advisor counselling (PFAC)
Patients and their families are knowledgeable members of the care team and can offer unique perspectives and valuable feedback about their experience at a hospital. The PFAC members are supposed to share healthcare experience with doctors, staff and other PFAC members and to participate in group discussions to talk about ideas for how our healthcare organization can improve care, quality, safety, and services. These meetings will provide a good platform to support patients with serious illnesses and their family members.
