Opportunity to Join the National HPV Learning Collaborative, Earn MOC, and Receive Funding

The National Improvement Partnership Network and the Academic Pediatric Association are collaborating on a national initiative starting in November 2018, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to recruit health care practices that serve adolescents to participate in a 9-month, virtual, quality improvement project. Practices that enroll in this multi-state project will receive training in QI methodology and implement evidence-based practice changes to increase immunization rates and reduce missed opportunities for HPV vaccine administration.

Given the importance of reducing the burden of HPV-associated cancers, the SD DOH will provide $3,000 per site for up to ten SD clinic sites who successfully complete project requirements. Applicants will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, view the funding application below or contact Lexi at lexi.pugsley@state.sd.us or 605-626-2660.

Enroll in the learning collaborative by October 15, 2018 at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NIPA_5_Enrollment. Clinic sites must also complete and submit the below application by October 15, 2018 to be eligible for funding.
