HPV QI Grant Program
The Iowa Chapter of AAP is currently participating in a yearlong quality improvement (QI) grant project to improve HPV vaccination rates in the state. The Iowa AAP is supporting the development and implementation of model projects at Blank Children’s Hospital and the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital to explore best practices for increasing rates of HPV vaccination for adolescent teenage boys and girls. Following the Model of Improvement and implementing a PDSA (Plan/Do/Study/Act) cycle, chapter members engaged in these QI projects are using a strong provider recommendation and peer-to-peer education to spread key concepts within pediatric practices throughout the state.
