HPV QI Project
AAP-CA (our District IX office) has received a grant from the National AAP to implement a statewide HPV Quality Improvement project. All four California Chapters will attend a daylong training in Orange County on June 4 (9 AM - 3 PM). AAP-CA2 is looking for a chapter member with strong QI expertise, interested in becoming part of our core QI team. Participation in the project is strictly voluntary and not compensated. The primary function of the core QI team will be to plan, design, and implement the HPV QI project within our extended service area. Aside from the initial training, most interaction will be conducted virtually via webinars and teleconferences. Funds are utilized to cover multiple in-person training sessions, webinars, materials, and support staff. For more information, please email the chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (818) 422-9877.
