myQIportal - Continuous Quality Improvement Project

Quality Improvement Project for Child Sexual Abuse for Medical Providers

Midwest Regional Children’s Advocacy Center is home to the Quality Improvement Project, myQIportal, in partnership with Children’s Minnesota. The intent of the project is to improve documentation and diagnostic accuracy of child sexual abuse evaluations. All of our expert reviewers are are committed to improving quality in the field of child sexual abuse diagnostics and helping clinicians provide the best possible care to victims of abuse. This program is available to advanced practice nurses, SANE nurses and board certified pediatricians.

This project involves the submission of 3 case sets. Each case set should consist of 5 consecutive sexual 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.

Length: Successful completion of myQIportal can take as little as 2 months and as long as 1 year.
Audience: MDs, NPs, PAs, SANEs and RNs
Cost: $250.00
