• We want you to make the most of your NQF membership. Our new member benefits are designed to deepen your understanding of healthcare quality and quality policy.

    Through the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) credit system, NQF members are now eligible to claim continuing medical education (CME) credits for select webinars, in-person meetings, and self-study programs. In addition, NQF recently launched a journal club in collaboration with Health Affairs, featuring in-depth discussions with experts and thought leaders on measurement science issues that affect the healthcare quality community.

    NQF Members are eligible to claim AAFP Prescribed credits at their convenience through two self-study programs: Attribution: Principles and Approaches and National Quality Partners Playbook: Antibiotic Stewardship in Acute Care. AAFP Prescribed credits are accepted by a variety of boards, including the American Board of Emergency Medicine, the American Board of Preventative Medicine, the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants. NQF plans to expand continuing education opportunities for eligible providers.

    The NQF Journal Club brings together authors and thought leaders in the field of health economics and quality policy and focuses on important and relevant issues covered in recent issues of Health Affairs. Moderated by Helen Burstin, MD, MPH, NQF’s chief scientific officer, these webinars give members access to recently published articles, in-depth conversations with featured authors, and the opportunity to delve into some of the most significant trends and challenges affecting healthcare quality. The NQF Journal Club offers a unique blend of policy analysis and analytic discussion.

    Join us for our next Journal Club event, Wednesday, May 31, 2:00-3:00 ET, to explore “Electronic Health Record Logs Indicate The Physicians Split Time Evenly Between Seeing Patients and Desktop Medicine,” published in the April 2017 issue of Health Affairs. Ming Tai-Seale, PhD, MPH, associate director at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation Research Institute and consulting professor at the Stanford School of Medicine’s Department of Health Research and Policy, will discuss her findings and invite participants to discuss their experiences and suggestions for future research in this area.

    All contacts from NQF Member organizations are eligible to participate in the Journal Club and claim CME credits at no charge.
