QIC Learning Session 2021

Five years of T1DX QI Collaborative and Reimagining the Future of Diabetes Care

Virtually, in Partnership with Boston Medical Center

November 8th & 9th, 2021, 11am – 4pm ET

By the end of this learning session, we want participants to:

Know: The work and accomplishments in the the last five years of the QI Collaborative work in improvement science and understand where population health is headed

Feel: Energized that teams have the tools to effectively mobilize and optimistic about the resources shared across the QI Collaborative.


  1. PDSA cycles to improve and address key drivers in clinical practice
  2. PDSA cycles to address interventions that support key drivers for the collaborative aim
  3. PDSA cycles to maintain/sustain the gains made in the interventions tested over the last 5 years


The learning session will offer CME credit hours through our partners at Boston Medical Center/Boston University

We are honored to announce the Journal of Diabetes as our conference partner for the T1D Exchange Quality Improvement Collaborative Learning Sessions on November 8th and 9th. All 21 abstracts (author index) from this conference were published on November 5th in the Journal of Diabetes.
