Review Process – Sharing Your Story

What will sharing your story be like?

We are gathering information and want to hear your story!

Each Regional Quality Council is implementing quality improvement projects within the following areas:

  • Arrowhead: TBD
  • Metro: Employment and support staff shortage
  • Region 10: Community connections and natural supports

Share your experiences in these areas by attending a listening session, focus group, community conversation, or informational interview.

Don’t see a topic that you want to share about? Reach out to a RQC Manager to get options on how to share your story!

How is the information used?

The information collected during listening sessions, focus groups, and informational interviews will be used to report best practices and barriers to the Department of Human Services as well as make recommendations on ways to improve the quality of supports and services for people with disabilities.  This information will also inform regional quality improvement work.

We will keep everything private and protect your privacy– unless you are in danger. We will not tell anyone in the agency, your providers, or family anything you tell us in private.

How will the participants be selected?

Participants are selected on a volunteer-basis. If you are interested in sharing your story, you can contact your region’s manager.  They will give you options of how you can share your story, depending on what it is.
