Pediatrician Accreditation Pilot to Improve HPV Vaccination Rates
Oconomowoc, WI, May 24, 2018 --( Enrollment is now open for an initiative aimed to improving HPV vaccination rates in preteens. Launched by the Wisconsin and Illinois Chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the program establishes a virtual learning collaborative of pediatricians from both states. The initiative is funded in part by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Program.

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, 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, or 312.773.1026, ext. 207. Interested providers are encouraged enroll by June 8, 2018.
