National Quality Forum Requests Public Comments on Healthcare Disparities and Cultural Competency Measures

The National Quality Forum is requesting public comments on a commissioned paper from the Disparities Solutions Center describing issues regarding the selection and evaluation of disparity-sensitive quality measures, methodological issues with disparities measurement, and cross-cutting measurement gaps in disparities.  The paper and the standards are specifically focused on racial and ethnic disparities, as the National Quality Forum develops and potentially endorses national quality performance measures on healthcare disparities and cultural competency.  Comments must be submitted to the National Quality Forum on its website by August 31, 2011.
