Developing a Quality Improvement Curriculum for Child Development Services in Community Health Centers


While experts generally agree on what constitutes high-quality pediatric care, that consensus is not always reflected in the care provided to young children. The National Initiative for Children's Healthcare Quality (NICHQ), a program of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, will test a new quality improvement curriculum for pediatric clinicians and staff at community health centers serving low-income children. Working in close collaboration with the federal Bureau for Primary Health Care (BPHC), this project will develop a set of approaches, materials, and training modules to assist doctors and other clinic staff in providing infants and toddlers with comprehensive developmental services. BPHC will test the curricula in selected health centers around the country. With additional support, NICHQ will be able to refine the training approach prior to broad dissemination through quality improvement activities being planned by BPHC.
