The National Quality Forum (NQF), a private, not-for-profit healthcare quality improvement organization, appointed members to the National Commission for Quality Long-term Care in consultation with leaders and advocates from the long-term care community. The NQF, acting in its role as a convener of a broad array of healthcare stakeholders, staffs and supports the commission but plays a neutral role in its activities, findings, and recommendations.
The Commission is composed of 14 volunteer members who reflect a diversity of experience, expertise, and interests. It holds open meetings at least three times a year and may appoint consultants, technical advisors or technical advisory committees. It reports on its findings at least once a year.
