In response to the huge increase in special interest division members’ interested in joining the Quality Improvement Study Section (from 100 plus in 1998 to almost 5,000 in 1999), the QI Study Section and Division 11 Steering Committees have made several recommendations to the Board of Division Coordinators regarding the future and priorities of the QI Study Section. Some of these recommendations include:
  1. Appointing a QI liaison in each special interest division. This QI liaison would be the Steering Committee’s contact person and would receive QI Steering Committee meeting minutes to stay up-to-date on QI activities, but would NOT be a Steering Committee member.

  2. Making QI information submitted to any Division Newsletter available to all QI Study Section members. Division Newsletter information is not typically available outside the specific Divisions. The QI Study Section could be a “clearinghouse” which offers QI articles to all Division Newsletters. For divisions serving as ASHA Continuing Education providers, QI Study Section members can serve as peer reviewers of QI information submitted for newsletter inclusion.

  3. Forming a closer relationship with PSB and JCAHO in order to make QI priorities, examples of QI plans and QI resources more widely available and distributed.

  4. Study Section Steering Committee opinion is that the QI Study Section continues to need a “home” within a division. We do not think that the QI Study Section would succeed if spun off into its own division, as people’s primary interests are focused on a professional/clinical specialty, rather than on “QI” alone.
