The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians is collaborating with the National Improvement Partnership Network to recruit participants in an ABFM – approved Part IV module on HPV vaccinations.
Opportunity to Receive ABFM Part IV credit towards your Maintenance of Certification!
The National Improvement Partnership Network and the Academic Pediatric Association are collaborating on a national initiative, NIPA, 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. Participants can earn credit towards professional certifications for project participation:
- MC-FP credit for 1 Part IV module or 20 Part IV points, from the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)
- Up to 20 Performance Improvement Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits from the AAFP
Through four consecutive cohorts, NIPA has proven an effective model for getting results. Family physicians from prior project cohorts increased HPV series initiation rates from 46 to 58% and increased series completion from rates 13 to 45%.
