NW16 National Board Patient Members Needed

Network 16 is seeking volunteers – patients or care partners – to represent the Network on two national committees:

ESRD National Coordinating Center’s Patient and Family Engagement Learning & Action Network:

  • Volunteers are asked to commit to participating in scheduled conference calls and webinars, usually every month or every other month
  • Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (Medicare) representatives are on the calls, providing an opportunity for volunteers to work closely with the federal government to improve patient care
  • The patient representative with the highest level of participation (attendance) gets to travel to Baltimore for a national meeting of the committee
  • Learn more about the committee at http://ncc.hshapps.com/en/patients/national-patient-and-family-engagement-lan-npfe-lan/.
  • We need one patient from Idaho, and one from Montana

Kidney Community Emergency Response Coalition (KCER):  This is a national group devoted to improving emergency preparedness and response for kidney patients and ESRD facilities.  This involves quarterly conference calls.  Learn more about the Coalition at http://www.kcercoalition.com/.  We need two patients from any Network state – Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, or Washington.

Anyone interested should email Lisa Hall at LHall@nw16.esrd.net or call 206-923-0714.
