In partnership with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Institute for Excellence in Health and Social Systems (IEHSS) is pleased to announce the 2021-2022 CF Virtual Improvement Program-Fundamentals (VIP-F7) and Quality Improvement Measurement Intensive (QIMI) series.

VIP-F7 is a 12-month virtual program that supports teams in reaching their quality improvement (QI) goals. The program offers three options to fit the needs of participating teams. Option 1 includes participation in three launch learning sessions; Option 2 includes participation in launches and two progress report sessions. Option 3 consists of the launches, progress report sessions and a Quality Improvement Team Coach. The program culminates with a poster session recapping the work done throughout the program.

VIP-F7 will kick off in October and has accepted six teams as part of Option 1, seven as part of Option 2 and four as part of Option 3. For the first time this year, we have expanded participation in the program internationally beyond North America to Chile, Argentina and Turkey.

QIMI provides as-needed, “just in time” measurement help and guidance to anyone engaged in quality improvement to answer the question – is change an improvement? QIMI sessions also include a review and feedback of abstracts targeted for the North American CF Conference (NACFC). QIMI launched on October 4, 2021 and welcomed nearly 70 participants interested in QI measurement support from IEHSS and their colleagues.
