New Call for Proposals (CFP): Quality Improvement Award Program, Cycle Two
NNPHI will provide health departments with $5,000 awards, coupled with 15 hours of individualized quality improvement (QI) assistance from an experienced QI Coach, to conduct a QI project that results in measureable change. The purpose of this QI Award Program is to support health departments to become more proficient in the adoption and application of QI and to meet the accreditation standards and measures set by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). Selected health departments will also be provided with additional opportunities, such as educational webinars with QI experts and sponsored attendance at a national accreditation and QI-focused meeting (the "Open Forum" meeting).
