Recruitment is one of the first and most critical steps for a delivery system to take when creating a consumer advisory committee for beneficiaries dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. Finding the right people to participate, and keeping them engaged for a year or more, can present significant challenges and costs that must be anticipated. This webinar focuses on the best practices to recruit and retain a diverse group of consumers and caregivers who have the capacity, skills, time and desire to regularly attend and meaningfully engage in a delivery system’s consumer advisory committee. The webinar includes a consumer who has been involved on an advisory committee to offer personal insights on how to motivate and support members.

  • Jacqueline Dowdy, Member Advocate, Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island
