The District Hub and Spoke Initiative began with QI trainings occurring with each of the AAP Districts.
The District QI Training involved district and chapter leadership along with local champions with clinical expertise in immunizations, HPV, and practice improvement. The training curriculum and worksheets were designed to meet districts where they are in their QI journey and provide opportunities for shared learning. Examples of training topics include foundational QI, the model for improvement, measurement, QI tools, and/or sustainability and spread. Specific aims of the training include:
- Promoting the application of QI methods and implementation strategies to district/chapter efforts
- Enhancing district and chapter capacity for leading and engaging in improvement initiatives
- Building leadership for QI among districts and chapters
