NDEP Task Groups are small groups of NDEP partners convened to accomplish specific projects or tasks in support of NDEP’s 5-year strategic plan. As Task Groups complete their charge, Task Groups are dissolved, but Task Group members are encouraged to remain in the NDEP Partnership Network.
When new Task Groups are formed, the NDEP will reach out to its Partnership Network to solicit nominations based on criteria established for a particular task. Partners with experience related to a specific task are encouraged to self-nominate – or nominate other individuals who can contribute to the work of the NDEP Task Group.
Task Groups and members are appointed by the NDEP Executive Committee. Task Groups are led by a volunteer chairperson, and report to the Executive Committee.
As of January 2016, NDEP Task Groups include:
Diabetes HealthSense Task Group
Goal: Update, review and maintain the resources of the Diabetes HealthSense tool. Identify resource gaps and explore ways NDEP can enhance promotion of this web resource through stronger partner engagement. By spring 2016, NDEP should have new and updated resources and articles available.
Practice Transformation Task Group
Goal: Guide evaluation, promotion, content review, maintenance, and expansion of Practice Transformation for Physicians and Health Care Teams, a web resource launched in 2013 to help health care professionals and administrators change systems of health care delivery to improve disease management support for people with diabetes and other chronic diseases. By spring 2016, NDEP will launch a revised version of the resource.
