Join the 2018 National Improvement Partnership HPV Learning Collaborative!

Dec 07, 2017 | Kim Rodgers

The National Improvement Partnership Network (NIPN) and the Academic Pediatric Association (APA) have collaborated on a national practice-based quality improvement (QI) initiative aimed at improving adolescent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination rates through strong provider recommendations and reducing missed opportunities.

Any organization (e.g., pediatric or family practice, school based health center, community clinic, etc.) which serves adolescents and provides HPV vaccine is eligible to participate. The learning collaborative will start in January 2018 and end in September 2018. Participants will engage in a virtual learning environment where they will attend six webinars and receive monthly feedback and guidance. Participating organizations will:

  • Earn credit towards professional certifications (ABP, Part 4 MOC, ABFM Party IV MC-FP and Performance Improvement CME);
  • Receive QI coaching and support in assessing practice systems for HPV vaccine delivery, recognizing barriers, and selecting evidence-based strategies to test with Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles as well as monthly feedback reports tracking progress;
  • Increase knowledge and build skills on topics such as strong provider recommendation for HPV vaccine, reducing missed opportunities for vaccination and adolescent-friendly office systems; and
  • Help raise the 2016 series completion rate of 49.5% (girls) and 37.5% (boys) to meet the Healthy People 2020 goal of 80%, while increasing the potential to prevent HPV-related cancers.

To join the learning collaborative, enroll by December 15, 2017. If needed, the enrollment deadline may be extended to January 2, 2018. For more information contact Rachel Wallace-Brodeur at Rachel.Wallace-Brodeur@med.uvm.edu or 757-484-1856.
