Patient Advocacy Group (PAG)

The PAG provides a patient, family and community perspective on issues and activities relevant to Royal Children's Hospital heart failure patients, as well as those transitioning into adult care. The committee helps to develop material that advocates for heart failure patients and their families, as well as educational tools for the wider community.

We also provide input on current research being undertaken at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute to treat heart failure in children.
