The December issue of the Northwest Renal Network’s patient newsletter, Network Consumer News, focuses on the Patient Advisory Council or PAC, and includes stories about three of the seven current PAC members and their experience with Vocational Rehabilitation. We’ve mailed these to facilities for distribution, but you can get a copy on the Network 16 website. As usual, we also have a Spanish edition and a large-print edition. With this issue we’ve also included a flyer or poster encouraging committed and engaged patients and care partners to join the PAC. Find them all at https://www.nwrn.org/patients-a-family/ptedres/ncn.html . You can also find more information on the Network 16 PAC at https://www.nwrn.org/patients-a-family/patient-advisory-committee.html .
