Participating in Measure Prioritization, Selection, and Endorsement

Providing Expertise

Commenting and voting is a vital part of the consensus development process and is also an important opportunity for NQF Members to voice their informed opinions to the Consensus Standard Approval Committee in its evaluation of candidate consensus standards.

Steering Committees

At the beginning of each consensus development project, NQF issues a call for nominations for the project's Steering Committee. Generally, a Steering Committee will be composed of individuals nominated by NQF Members, unless a necessary perspective or specific expertise is not available within NQF's membership.

Check out all NQF Projects.

Assembling your own knowledgebase of quality resources

NQF issues dozens of reports, announcements, and charts each year. These resources are archived so they are easy to read and share, providing background about measurement, reporting, and NQF's role in the process.
