NQC National TA Calls

 HIV providers face many challenges in developing sound quality management programs, including unfamiliarity with quality improvement concepts. To provide routine learning opportunities, the National Quality Center (NQC) hosts monthly National Technical Assistance (TA) Calls on a variety of topics to highlight key quality improvement concepts and methodologies. Using web-conference platforms, the calls encourage interactions with presenters.
