Participating in NQF Council activities is one valuable way Members can introduce their unique perspective in support of the measures endorsement process and help advance the work of NQF. The Councils are organized by stakeholder group, and afford Members a voice in crafting national solutions to quality concerns. They also provide opportunities for Members to connect with other healthcare leaders involved in quality improvement.
The eight Councils convene regularly over the phone, and in person at NQF's Annual Conference, to discuss matters of interest to NQF and the organizations they represent. These interactions offer NQF Members additional opportunities both to learn about emergent issues and to build important relationships with their peers in the healthcare industry.
NQF Council Leadership
The elected chairs of the NQF Councils advise NQF leadership on the organization’s overall strategy and direction and provide input to the Consensus Standards Approval Committee on proposed consensus standards. They represent their Council perspectives when immediate input is requested, and ensure that their Council members are both kept informed and also engage effectively when there are opportunities to be heard.
