In 1999 the Emergency Medical Services for Children program developed the Family Advisory Network (FAN).
The purpose of the FAN was to incorporate family members into the national and state EMSC programs so that the communities they represented would have a voice. FAN representatives have assisted the EMSC program in improving pediatric patient outcomes through education, community outreach, resource creation, and policy development.
An actively involved FAN can help promote the value of family-centered care in emergency medicine across the entire state.
