This expansion makes it possible for representation of more patient and caregiver populations within Michigan to have voices that are heard and included in quality improvement efforts for cancer care. The heart of what makes MOQC valuable and impactful has always been informed by patient, survivor, and caregiver leadership and service. Recruitment of medically underserved and minoritized members increases awareness of challenges to high quality care among patients at all levels of the collaborative. Amplifying the experiences of POQC members and paying for their time and expertise has been essential in honoring that experience and paying respect. Quality improvement should be applicable to all people who have experienced cancer.

POQC members attend and actively participate in all collaborative decision-making meetings hosted by MOQC, including the Steering Committee, the Measures Committee, all task forces, all advisory boards, and biannual and regional meetings. POQC members are also invited to monthly team meetings of the coordinating center.
