Regional Quality Improvement (QI) groups provide a unique and valuable approach for peer learning, local support, and opportunities for regional community of practice. The groups combine active learning and involvement through exchange of ideas, problemsolving, and successful strategies for improvement. New concepts and techniques for improvement are discussed with the added relevance of the local and/or regional environment. The forum provides an opportunity for cumulative conversations, highlighting local expertise and building on shared knowledge across multiple priority topics. Group projects related to prioritized quality indicators reinforces accountability and provides motivation to spur the groups and the regions overall performance. Local and national facilitators provide access to tools, articles, and training. Targeted technical assistance by a quality expert and peer coaching are primary components provided.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the purpose and structure of regional quality groups.
  • Understand the power of peer learning and local impact on HIV care improvement.
  • Learn about existing successful regional quality groups and their shared quality projects
