Description

ASN is one of seven societies partnering with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in an Adult Immunization Project. The goal of this 5-year project is to increase the adoption of CDC Standards of Adult Immunization Practices (SAIP) and the delivery of recommended vaccinations to patients receiving nephrology care. ASN detailed six elements in its plan to achieve the goals of this initiative. Figure 1 displays the integration of these elements in the project cycle.

1. Leadership – ASN's Task Force of immunization experts and health equity champions provides strategic guidance for the project.

2. Engagement – ASN will host Learning and Action Network sessions to promote quality and process improvements, share knowledge, and brainstorm solutions to barriers among the project participants. By September 2023, ASN will engage 7 dialysis corporations and a total of 14 dialysis facilities across the U.S. in this project.

3. Resource Library – Kidney community needs will be the driving force in constructing a webpage that provides culturally and linguistically appropriate resources for kidney professionals and patients.

4. On-Demand Learning – Training materials for kidney professionals and patients will be developed using human design and adult learning principles.

5. Continuous Quality Improvement Approach (CQIA) – ASN will Implement CDC’s Assessment, Feedback, Incentives, and eXchange (AFIX) approach to collect data, report results, and demonstrate the adoption of improvement principles.

6. Spread – ASN’s quality improvement messaging, community engagement, and educational activities — centered around awareness months and vaccine cycles — will contribute to dialysis facility initiatives and patient education. ASN will recruit change champions and develop a “train-the-trainer” model to encourage sustained growth.
