The Patient and Caregiver Oncology Quality Council (POQC) is composed of patients and their caregivers, representing their experiences with a variety cancers and practices across the state of Michigan. POQC members support the MOQC Steering Committee and our practices by guiding the development of new projects, providing input and critical feedback about patient care and caregiver experiences.
The commitment of this group is a two-year term, beginning in early Spring of each year. The nomination process opens at the January biannual meeting every year and is available to all MOQC physicians and practice members.
Members participate every other month in a 60-minute teleconference and also two meetings scheduled in conjunction with each biannual meeting in January and June. The members choose how they wish to participate, reviewing and providing feedback on documents, taking part in a panel at a meeting, sharing their story to practices, and developing new quality improvement projects.
