Quality Improvement Summit
April 7, 2018
Hilton Columbus at Easton
Participants will gain insight into the breast & cervical cancer topic, learn the benefits of a team-based approach to care, and understand the importance of setting an office protocol that supports practice improvement. An expert speaker will cover topics such as the importance of quality improvement (QI) and its impact on enhanced patient care, showcase key points of the breast & cervical cancer topic, and illustrate how streamlining office procedures can make a positive impact on health outcomes as well as an improved work environment.
In addition, the selected practices will use the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians’ breast & cervical cancer QI module that has been approved by the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) as an alternative Family Medicine Certification Performance Improvement (PI) activity for 20 PI points and by the American Academy of Family Physicians for 20 continuing medical education (CME) credits.
Selected Practices Must
- Identify up to four members of the care team to attend the Summit on Saturday, April 7, at the Hilton Columbus at Easton in Columbus. Attendance by a physician or team is required.
- Utilize the breast & cervical cancer QI module to enter chart data, select a pathway of intervention, and re-enter data after six months of protocol intervention. View a video tutorial on how to use the module.
Participating Practices Receive
- Complimentary registration and mileage reimbursement for up to four members of the care team to attend the Summit.
- Free CME credits for all on-site participants. Application for CME credit will be filed with the AAFP. We anticipate approximately 5 credits to be awarded. These credits are recognized by most national organizations.
- $250 practice stipend for completion of the module after six months of intervention implementation.
- ABFM Family Medicine Certification credit and 20 AAFP Performance Improvement in Practice credits upon completion of the breast & cervical cancer module.

This QI initiative is supported by grants provided by the American Cancer Society (ACS) East Central Division and the Ohio Department of Health (ODH).
Based upon successes recognized in 2016 and 2017, the OAFP will continue to offer the evidence-based intervention program that address breast & cervical cancer prevention and early detection. This endeavor will continue to be a collaborative intervention with the OAFP, ODH, and the ACS East Central Division.
The Breast & Cervical Cancer Prevention and Early Detection track will follow the a two-part process offering team training and a mechanism for data collection, process improvement, and outcomes measurement. The OAFP, in partnership with ODH, created an online learning management module that provides a systematic approach to identifying areas of practice strength and opportunities for improvement through the collection of patient and practice data, development of a QI plan, implementation of interventions, and completion of a post-assessment process to determine if improvement was achieved.
