Project Design Feedback and Professional Credits

To receive QI project design feedback and/or professional credits for your QI project, you must submit a QI Effort: Project Proposal application for credit using the QI Hub Application System. If you wish to obtain MOC/CME/NCPD (nursing) credit for your project, you must ensure your project follows the Meaningful Participation Criteria below.

  • We recommend submitting an application after you have completed your current state assessment, but before you have tested any interventions.
  • You can expect to receive personalized feedback on your project plan and the decision of approval for credit within 4 weeks of the day you submit the application.

Meaningful Participation Criteria

The QI Hub has established the following minimum participation standards, which should be used as a guide when planning your QI Effort. Should any disputes arise among participating clinicians regarding their eligibility for credit, these are the standards they will be held to when resolving the dispute.
