myQIportal - Continuous Quality Improvement Project

ABP Approved Quality Improvement Project for Child Physical Abuse

The Midwest Regional Children’s Advocacy Center is now home to the American Board of Pediatrics Approved Quality Improvement Project, myQIportal/Physical Abuse, in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics. The intent of the project is to improve documentation and diagnostic accuracy of child physical abuse evaluations. All of our expert reviewers are Board Certified Child Abuse Pediatricians who are committed to improving quality in the field of child physical abuse documentation and helping clinicians provide the best possible care to victims of abuse.

Length: Successful completion of myQIportal can take as little as 2 months and as long as 1 year.
Audience: Board Certified Child Abuse Pediatricians
Cost: $250.00
Credits: This program is approved for 25 Part IV MOC credits from the American Academy of Pediatrics for Performance in Practice.

What is myQIportal?

This quality improvement project is approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Section on Child Abuse and Neglect, for American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV credit for Performance in Practice. For more information on ABP certified quality improvement projects and MOC 4 credit requirement visit www.abp.org.

This project involves the submission of 3 case sets. Each case set should consist of 5 consecutive physical abuse cases you have evaluated. The submission of consecutive cases allows the reviewers to assess your present photographic technique and diagnostic skills, not just your difficult or tricky cases.  After the submission of each case set you will receive feedback and be assigned interventions by a reviewer from our Expert Review Panel. You will have 1 month to complete the assigned interventions before submitting your next case set. Upon the completion of all 3 case sets you will be provided with a certificate of completion and a final report of your progress during the project.

What information will I need to submit a case?

  • Your de-identified consultation report in PDF format
  • De-identified clinical images (a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 images) in the following digital still formats: JPEG, TIFF, BMP, and PNG)
