The HIVQUAL Group Learning Guide, revised in 2006, provides workshop materials for facilitators to help them conduct interactive group exercises to promote quality improvement among HIV providers.

Each of the 23 quality improvement workshops includes background information and facilitator notes, exercises such as quizzes, role-playing games, and case studies with answer keys, participant handouts, and presentation slides.

Among the various workshops topics, training materials are included for:
• Importance of leadership in quality improvement
• How to write a quality management plan
• How to collect performance data
• Writing an improvement project memo
• Understanding team roles in quality improvement projects

The National HIV Quality of Care (HIVQUAL) Project, sponsored by the HIV/AIDS Bureau of the Health Resources and Services Administration and carried out by the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute, was established to improve the quality of care for persons living with HIV/AIDS by building capacity and capability for quality improvement in HIV ambulatory care clinics.
