This NQC training is a bit different than prior ones because we require one person from a recipient and one consumer to apply as a training team.

NQC developed the TCQPlus program in recognition of the demand for local Training of Consumers on Quality (TQC) trainings and the realization that another level of training was necessary to address the desire of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients to involve consumers in their quality management program.
One central aim of the TCQPlus Program is to strengthen the training capacity among consumers and RWHAP recipients to conduct local quality improvement trainings to consumers; in short ‘a QI training by consumers to consumers.’ To ensure the necessary commitment and the successful implementation of TCQ trainings, NQC has designed the TCQPlus around the concept of training partners. Training partners consist of a qualified consumer who is engaged with RWHAP recipient(s) and a representative from a RWHAP recipient. Each training partner has a vital role in ensuring that a TCQ training is conducted in their local jurisdictions and delivered in keeping with the TCQPlus post-training expectations.
NQC has funds for a limited number of scholarships. Scholarships will pay for your lodging and airfare (coach flights only). To request a scholarship, please provide the following:
TCQPlus Program and Its Goals
The specific goals of the TCQPlus Program are:
Develop the national training capacity among consumers and RWHAP recipients to deliver quality improvement trainings to consumers in local jurisdictions
Foster a working relationship between consumers and RWHAP recipients to form TCQPlus training partners
Conduct local training sessions by the TCQPlus training partners to implement the NQC-developed TCQ training
The suggested outcomes for the successful implementation of the TCQPlus Program are to:
Increase the number of consumers who attend a TCQ training conducted by TCQPlus graduates
Increase the number of consumers who are active members of RWHAP recipient clinical quality management programs
