If you are considering applying for the Kansas Family Medicine Pneumococcal Immunization Office Champions (KFMPIOC) Program, the deadline to apply is Wednesday, December 12! This QI Initiative is designed to improve the rate of pneumococcal and other immunizations for the Medicare population. KFMPIOC will utilize an office-based champion model framework based upon ACIP recommendations and NVAC Standards for Adult Immunization Practices. Practices selected to participate will have expert technical assistance to complete the initiative and will earn up to $4,900 in stipends for participation and completion.

If you missed the Dec. 5 webinar, the slides and video recording is available on the KFMPIOC web page.

The program is funded by a grant from Pfizer and AAFP, who selected KAFP in a competitive grant proposal process, as one of three chapters participating in the grant. KAFP is pleased to work with Kansas Foundation for Medical Care (KFMC) on this program.
