Parents – Get Involved

Our Vision:

That every child receives the highest standard of care, whether they seek treatment in a pediatric or general emergency department.

The ECHO and ARCHE research programs are part of a movement in health care towards more patient-centered or family-centered care, wherein patients and their families actively engage in health care decision-making in partnership with the clinical team. Through the Pediatric Parents’ Advisory Group (P-PAG) and the Pediatric Parents’ Advisory Network (P-PAN), we aim to engage parents and families in developing processes and resources to improve child health outcomes.

About P-PAG

The Pediatric Parents’ Advisory Group (P-PAG) is a group of parents, legal guardians, and grandparents across Alberta seeking to contribute to child health research. Members serve as advisors to the ECHO and ARCHE research programs at the University of Alberta by providing advice and feedback on research aimed at improving child health outcomes. Members meet monthly from September to May.
