CLQIC Committee and Member Information

Community Living Quality Improvement Committee (CLQIC) Biographies - October 2016

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (HCPF) houses an advisory committee focused on quality improvement for HCPF's Office of Community Living (OCL). The Community Living Quality Improvement Committee (CLQIC) provides input to the OCL on the development of a robust quality strategy from a person-centered perspective.

The CLQIC meets on a monthly basis for two hours. The committee is interested in membership inclusive of persons with lived experiences, caregivers, providers and related stakeholders of the following child and adult populations:

  • Older Adults
  • Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities
  • Cognitive Disabilities
  • Physical Disabilities
  • Mental Health Disabilities
  • Behavioral Disabilities
  • Substance Use Disorders

The CLQIC's charter mandates open recruitment, and applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis. That said, membership is based on keeping diverse representation on CLQIC. Therefore, simply submitting an application does not ensure acceptance onto CLQIC.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the CLQIC, or you have any additional questions, comments or feedback, please contact Tasia Sinn by email by phone303-866-3987.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
