Collecting participant feedback for our programs has valuable benefits. It’s crucial to gain accurate assessments, needs and insights of the individuals our programs serve. Our programs regularly use Participant Advisory Groups (PAGs) to gain this feedback. The individuals who serve in the PAGs are valuable for maintaining our high-quality programs.
Hattie Griggs, Maternal & Child Health Coordinator, shared that the First Breath program annually conducts a PAG for feedback. She said this helps them gain insight, feedback and suggestions from past and current participants to implement new programming and/or to improve the current program.
Hattie said that this year, “We will use their feedback to create Overdose Prevention Education material and implement a support group in the future. This is always a great opportunity for the program! Our participants are valued and appreciated for this feedback.”
A total of 59 individuals participated in this year’s PAG. They provided feedback on First Breath initiatives, including the text messaging program, new materials and support group implementation. Check out the full report here.
