QuIIN members have the opportunity to participate in a variety of improvement projects of interest to ambulatory, outpatient primary care pediatricians and their staff teams. PIN projects include both formal quality improvement projects, which follow the standards established by the American Board of Pediatrics for Maintenance of Certification Part 4 as well as informal assessment projects that provide practicing pediatrician input into tools and evidence based recommendations.
Who is Eligible to Participate in a PIN Project?
Membership in QuIIN is required to participate in both formal and informal assessment projects. For formal quality improvement projects, QuIIN members may also be requested to invite members of their staff to participate. To be considered for a formal improvement project a QuIIN member will complete a lead physician application at the time of recruitment for a project. Eligibility for informal assessment projects is dependent on criteria for each individual project. To join QuIIN,
