Indiana Quality Improvement Network Peer Learning

The Indiana Quality Improvement Network (IQIN) provides a number of forums for peer groups with similar interests to share, learn, and forge a common vision for future network endeavors.

The IQIN Peer Learning Teams are professional development communities designed for groups of health center staff who share common roles and challenges. The Peer Learning Teams provide opportunities for participants to discuss real life challenges and opportunities, while sharing practical strategies that can be tested and applied immediately.

Participants greatly value Peer Learning Teams because:

  • Discussion topics are specific, relevant, and customized to participants' responsibilities, needs, and interests.
  • Participants easily form bonds, and advise and inspire one another because they share many work-related interests. Collaboration and networking also occurs outside regularly scheduled meetings, based on connections established during peer learning exchanges.
  • Conversations are cumulative, building on experience and knowledge gained across multiple topics.
  • Supplemental resources, articles, tools, and subject matter experts are used to focus on specific areas of interest to team participants and consultants.
  • A summary of the insights and actions suggested by participants during peer learning exchanges is provided to all team members. Summary notes remind those involved in the meetings (whether held by webinar or face-to-face) about the full range of suggestions and ideas discussed.

IQIN has joined forces with Integrated Work, a women-owned leadership development firm specializing in accelerating impact for mission-driven organizations through real-time, applied leadership development, to design and launch our Peer Learning Teams. For the past 17 years, Integrated Work has designed, managed, and facilitated peer learning programs under a contract with HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care Office of Quality Improvement, Strategic Partnership Division.
