Patient Advocates may be helpful when:

- A person needs a “third party” to hear or to help them communicate a concern
- A person wants to ask a question, make a suggestion, register a complaint, offer feedback
- A Gannett staff member identifies a situation in which a Patient Advocate might be able to answer a question, address a concern, or facilitate a conversation that would be helpful to a patient
- A staff or faculty member, coach, friend, parent or other family member wants to help facilitate care for a student, ask a question, make a suggestion, register a complaint, or offer feedback about our services
