Quick QI HPV Project Underway
Thanks to funding from AAP, CT-AAP has launched its “Quick QI HPV Project” in collaboration with the Immunization Program of the CT Department of Public Health, which has gotten approval from CDC to make our program an alternative QI project for VFC practices.
The goal is to measurably improve vaccination rates among HPV vaccine naïve patients 11 to 13 years old using proven QI methodologies. The project has been approved for ABP MOC Part 4 credit. The program features kick-off (March) and wrap-up (July) webinars, plus podcasts on provider/patient communications and immunization tracking. Physicians and their practice teams will submit HPV immunization data and test interventions monthly. Participants will receive regular feedback from a highly qualified QI coach.
