Quality Improvement Study Group

The Quality Improvement (QI) Study Group is advancing the quality initiatives for the Cerebral Palsy Research Network. QI seeks to improve outcomes through systemic change and reduction in variation in practice. The group has studied the QI methodologies pioneered by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Intermountain Health Care to determine the QI methodology that will best suit CPRN and the outcomes it seeks to improve.
