“Lack of Actionable Response to our Issue Statements from DHHS.”
This current Issue Statement goes to the heart of what Issue Statement are supposed to do. The CCSM works hard to research issues and solutions to challenges consumers face in the community every day. The challenge we are now facing is that when DHHS responds it often is a description of what they are already doing to address things or agreeing with us without real engagement with the consumer community to move initiatives forward. Because these are valuable to both the consumer and State, we want to find new ways to use the resource that these Issue Statements are to bring about real action. We also want to look at other ways to get our Issue Statements out to people who can help bring our concerns forward: for example; the Legislature and the Press.
The CCSM Issues Statement Committee would like to hear from you. What are your thoughts on helping to find a solution to this issue? Please respond by attending your local meeting and giving solution oriented feedback, either verbally or in writing. Written comments can also be emailed to: email@example.com OR sent through the mail to:
