Project I-SCRN: Improving Screening, Connections with Families, and Referral Networks

Apply to participate in Project I-SCRN: Improving Screening, Connections with families, and Referral Networks

The American Academy of Pediatrics is seeking twenty practices to participate in Project I-SCRN, a year-long quality improvement learning collaborative designed to provide pediatric primary care practices with the strategies, tools, and resources needed to increase rates of screening, referral, and follow-up for developmental milestones, autism, maternal depression, social determinants of health, and optionally, social-emotional development.  Key areas of focus will include enhancing family-centered care, establishing a team-based approach, and engaging with community partners to develop a comprehensive referral network to support the needs of children and families.

Quality improvement and subject matter experts will support practice teams as they learn and apply quality improvement methodology to develop an efficient and effective workflow for screening, referral, and follow-up.  Project offerings include two in-person learning sessions (travel expenses paid by project), monthly webinars and coaching, data collection and reporting using the AAP QIDA (Quality Improvement Data Aggregator) system, a robust change package and resource packet, and a $5,000 stipend for each practice to support project activities.

Participating pediatricians will have the opportunity to earn American Board of Pediatrics Part 4 Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit (pending approval).  AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ (PI CME) and CE credit are available to physicians and allied health professionals.

Detailed information about the project and a link to the intent form and application can be accessed on the website.  An informational webinar will be held on May 3, 2017.  The deadline for applications is May 19, 2017.

For questions regarding the collaborative or the application process, contact Sigal Shapira, Program Manager, at 847/434-4290 or at sshapira@aap.org.
