Quality Improvement Project to Improve Developmental Screening and Follow-up
The AAP Division of Children with Special Needs, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is recruiting primary care pediatricians to participate in a quality improvement project to learn how to improve developmental monitoring, screening, and follow-up for developmental concerns in practice. Participating pediatricians will also have an opportunity to be part of a community of learners from around the country, test and share strategies, access practical tools and resources, and receive ongoing support and technical assistance regarding progress.
This project is overseen by the American Academy of Pediatrics Division of Children with Special Needs with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Up to 65 practicing primary care pediatricians will be recruited to participate in this project. The first 65 applicants who meet the criteria for participation will be accepted.
To participate in this project, you must be a practicing primary care pediatrician who sees at least 10 patients per month for 9-month, 18-month, and 24- or 30-month health supervision visits. Pediatric subspecialists are not eligible to apply.
