Congratulations to the Washington Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (WCAAP) for their Best Starts for Kids Adolescent Immunization Partnership award! They will receive up to $440,000 over two years. Read on to learn more about an Immunization Improvement Partnership.
The Request for Proposals to support an Adolescent Immunization Improvement Partnership is now available. Applications are due by February 6.
In the process of developing this program over the last year, Best Starts gained a deeper understanding of the resources required to effectively support regional child and adolescent health improvement efforts. Moving forward, the Best Starts for Kids program will reflect the National Improvement Partnership Network’s Improvement Partnership model. This will expand the scope of the program to better provide a sustainable strategy to ensure that all adolescents receive appropriate and timely vaccines as well as address other child health priorities. Beginning in 2019, the quality improvement learning collaborative will be a part of the Improvement Partnership.
Best Starts for Kids is excited to announce our partnership with the University of Washington School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology and the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice. As the awardee of the Best Starts Adolescent Immunization Learning Collaborative RFP, the University of Washington will work with the Public Health Seattle & King County Immunization Program to establish a learning collaborative aimed at increasing vaccination coverage rates for adolescents and teens, protecting them and others from serious infectious diseases. The project will seek to identify and address disparities in coverage while promoting the overall uptake in King County youth vaccination rates.
