Topic: Consumer Advisory Boards
Consumer Advisory Boards (CABs) serve to provide clinics with input and guidance from patients regarding the design and delivery of care. To be effective, CABs follow operating procedures to guide them in member formation, convening meetings, providing feedback, and monitoring their work over time to assess their impact on clinic operations.
