Join a FREE informational webinar or request a call with a member of the faculty to discuss your student health center’s participation. Submit an application to ensure that your institution’s goals for participation are aligned with those of the Collaborative. Note: a completed application is NOT a binding agreement to participate. You may request a call with a member of the faculty to discuss your application and any remaining questions you may have about participating. Once your student health center is ready to commit, a senior leader will sign and return the institutional letter of commitment. To ensure consideration, your application must be completed in its entirety by September 11, 2017 & your letter of commitment must be submitted by October 2, 2017.
Onboarding and Laying the Foundation
Faculty will coach teams through a sequence of key activities such as: forming a vaccination improvement team; assessing existing vaccination practices and quality improvement capability; and identifying partners and assets. During this period, teams will also begin to connect with others participating in the Collaborative and gain access to an Online Resource Center and listserv for participants. Team will participate in a series of webinars focused on building foundational knowledge and skills regarding quality improvement methods and vaccination delivery practices.
Virtual Learning Sessions
Teams and expert faculty will convene for five virtual Learning Sessions. These sessions provide an opportunity for learning, networking, and refinement of teams’ improvement plans. We strongly encourage the consistent participation of members of your team at all five meetings. Learning Sessions include a mix of expert faculty and peer-led plenary sessions, interactive workshops, dialogue and exchange of ideas, and facilitated team planning time – all of which enables teams to test change ideas locally, and then reflect, learn, and refine these tests. Formal academic knowledge is bolstered by the practical voices of peers who can say, “We had the same challenge; let us tell you how we solved it.”
Between Learning Sessions, teams use quality improvement methods to test changes, starting small using PDSA cycles, and scaling up successful improvements. Teams are supported with six interactive online modules, a listserv, data support, an online resource center for sharing team created materials, and individualized coaching as needed — all of which enable teams to share information, learn from national experts and other teams, improve systems and processes, and ultimately increase vaccination rates.
Virtual Learning Congress
As the concluding activity, the Learning Congress provides the opportunity to share Collaborative successes and lessons learned and for teams to celebrate their accomplishments with key stakeholders and nonparticipating organizations.
