All RDs are invited to the kick-off. Here is the agenda as of Marc 26th – Kick Off Agenda for Preventing Childhood Obesity LC May 9 2014
The kick-off is geared toward practices that want to be involved in the 8-month CHIC project which helps physicians chart/identify children at unhealthy weights and provide families with resources to change.
Here is a brief description:
Children’s Healthcare Improvement Collaboration (CHIC) – Learning Collaborative·
Designed as an evidence based quality improvement project
Practices agree to submit data for baseline and sustainability measures
Practices commit to submit monthly data by auditing charts and recording measures
CHIC QI team aggregates data and provides results back to practices and planning committee monthly
Minimum participation standards(by practices):
So far the CHIC project has a list of dietitians for physicians to use as referrals across the state. Stacy Beeson s on the CHIC committee and is happy to involve anyone else.
How else can we involve anyone!
We also have monthly webinar/conference calls if any RD wants to speak on a childhood obesity related issue in July.?.
If any RD has other specific regional (regions 2-6) programs for families at unhealthy weights, please send them to me : ). Thanks! STACY
