The National Quality Forum (NQF) employs a transparent process in the development, selection, and specification of quality measures for which NQF is responsible. To do so, NQF convenes advisory committees. Each advisory committee is a group of stakeholders and experts who provide technical input to NQF on the development, selection, and maintenance of measures for which NQF is responsible, identify and evaluate competing and related measures, identify opportunities for harmonization of similar measures, recommend measures that should be considered for use in performance improvement applications, recommend measure concepts for development to address gaps in the portfolio, and provide advice or technical expertise about the subject to other NQF committees.
Throughout the year, APTA nominates members to serve on relevant NQF advisory committees.
APTA Engage is being utilized to identify individuals who are interested in being nominated by APTA to serve on NQF advisory committees. Potential candidates should have background, expertise, and an interest in quality measurement, and if selected, must be willing and able to represent the physical therapy profession in its entirety.
This is not an APTA-appointed position. When APTA nominates a candidate, the nomination is sent directly to NQF. NQF is responsible for selecting appointees and any future communications on appointment status will come directly from NQF.
This opportunity may require travel to Washington, DC and follow-up calls and webinars, with an estimated 25-30 hours total commitment. Specific dates are not available at this time.
