The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has developed a Performance Improvement Continuing Medical Education (PICME) activity designed to help educate clinicians about the importance of utilizing a quality/practice Improvement method, and Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) cycles to improve vaccination rates.
Physicians are often not aware of discrepancies of immunization rates. This PICME and webcast activity is designed to change competence and performance with respect to increasing adult immunization rates among African American patients.
Credit approval includes the following session(s):
- 20.00 Performance Improvement AAFP Prescribed Credit(s) - Increasing Adult Immunization Rates Among African American Communities
- 1.00 Enduring Materials, Self-Study AAFP Prescribed Credit(s) - Increasing Adult Immunization Rates Among African American Communities Webcast
Upon completion of this CME activity, you will be able to:
- Reflect on current medical skills and practice environment through chart audits, self-assessment, and patient surveys that measure key indicators of high-quality care for immunizations for African American patients.
- Identify practice deficits that impact performance related to immunization rates of African American patients.
- Based on current practice deficits, identify, and execute evidence-based changes that consistently support patient-centered outcomes for immunizations for African American patients.
- Reflect on the effect of the changes you have made on practice performance and modify these changes to support long-term, ongoing, continuous improvements.
