Preliminary learning collaborative organization is now in process; data collection will begin the first week of June and will conclude by September. This activity is funded in part from a grant from the American Academy of Pediatrics, building on prior successful efforts in both states, focusing on providing strong recommendation for initiation of the HPV vaccine in children 11 and 12 years of age.

 

Participants will benefit from a series of live and archived webinars, learning collaborative conference calls and one-on-one available technical support to complete the data entry. Using the Illinois Chapter AAP’s (ICAAP) online Learning Management System (LMS) and based on lessons learned during the course of previous projects, an enduring accredited, self-directed curriculum will be available after the pilot has concluded.

 

20 MOC Part 4 and 5 CME credits (see below) will be available at no cost to participants.
