Pediatrician Accreditation Pilot to Improve HPV Vaccination Rates
Research shows the HPV vaccine prevents cancer, and preteens can be protected by strong provider recommendation. Enrollment is now open for pediatricians in Illinois and Wisconsin for an accredited quality improvement project to increase vaccination rates, and participants can register on an individual basis or by practice.
Providers will benefit from a series of educational modules, project conference calls and one-on-one technical support to complete data entry. Upon completion of the project, participants will receive 20 Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV points from the American Board of Pediatrics.
Mala Mathur, MD, MPH, FAAP, president of the Wisconsin Chapter and co-project leader, said, “This is a unique opportunity for providers looking for a one-stop program to improve their practice. We are fortunate to offer this educational program at no cost and with tremendous peer and expert supports.”
Both individuals and groups/practices are invited to enroll. Individuals can visit icaap.remote-learner.net, create a user account, then register for the “HPV Vaccine Quality Improvement Project” course. To enroll a group or practice, contact Dru O’Rourke, Project Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.773.1026, ext. 207. Interested providers are encouraged enroll by June 8, 2018.
