Register Now for the HPV Quality Improvement Project

Posted on: February 19, 2019

The Illinois and Wisconsin Chapters of the AAP are partnering to develop a course designed to improvement HPV and adolescent vaccination rates in practice. The activity is available to pediatricians in Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas. This course offers two tracks for participants.  In track one, for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit, participants will view three educational modules. These modules focus on HPV disease and vaccine, other adolescent vaccinations, and overcoming barriers. In track two, the QI track, participants will enter data and apply QI in practice. To receive MOC Part IV credit, learners must enter baseline data, cycle 1 data, and cycle 2 data over a period of 12 weeks.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Review HPV disease and HPV vaccine
  • Identify the ACIP immunization schedule for adolescent vaccines, including the HPV vaccine
  • Identify opportunities to improve HPV vaccine rates by improving access, developing standing orders, standardizing workflows and scheduling, and developing a system for alerts, reminders, and recall
  • Develop and implement a quality improvement plan to improve HPV vaccine rates in practice utilizing PDSA cycles of improvement
Quality Improvement Measures
  1. HPV Dose 1 – Is there documentation that the patient received dose 1 of the HPV vaccination series?
  2. HPV Dose 2 – Is there documentation that the patient received dose 2 of the HPV vaccination series?
  3. TDAP – Is there documentation that the patient received a dose of Tdap?
  4. MCV4/MenACWY – Is there documentation that the patient received a dose of MCV4/MenACWY?
