ADHD Quality Improvement Project

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is committed to helping pediatricians provide high quality health care to children.  Engaging in quality improvement (QI) work to implement evidence-based guidelines is one of the methods by which the AAP can support pediatricians in realizing this goal.  The Chapter Quality Network (CQN) ADHD Project is an exciting program through which the NYS AAP – Chapter 2 will lead a QI effort amongst 10-15 practices to improve ADHD diagnosis and care processes using tools, resources and technical assistance from the National AAP.  This project is funded by an independent grant from Pfizer, Inc.

Participating practice teams will attend a series of four learning sessions, (two face to face, and two webinars), each followed by an action period during which they will have the opportunity to test small changes in their clinical setting.  During each action period, practices will measure progress toward improvement goals.  Expert faculty will coach practice teams to apply key change ideas into their own offices/clinics.

The CQN ADHD Project offers both you and your practice an unparalleled opportunity to improve care for children with the support of your local chapter, as well as expert faculty.

Participation in the project also affords the lead physicians MOC Part 4 credits.
