Discussion question (1 page required)

Part 1: While physicians may want to participate in quality improvement (QI) initiatives in their practices, many barriers exist that prevent them from doing so.

  1. What are some of these barriers?
  2. If you were heading this program how would you involve physicians?

Part 2: Vaccinations

There are two clear sides to the question of whether to vaccinate children or not. Vaccines work by preparing a child’s body to fight illness. Do immunizations cause SIDS, multiple sclerosis, or other problems?

  1. Share your thoughts on the debate from a quality assurance perspective.
  2. How would you answer the parent who asks if immunizations cause the above mentioned illnesses or issues?
