One of NJAFP’s quality improvement & education (QIE) projects is the Family Medicine Residency Program & Community Health Center Learning Collaborative. Every year, the Collaborative focuses on a different clinical indication, with each indication utilizing universal principles of quality improvement and Patient-Centered Medical Home goals. The Collaborative has been operating for seven years; it moved from Pennsylvania via the Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians’ oversight to New Jersey’s last year. This year’s indication is major depressive disorder (MDD), a project which is funded by Takeda Pharmaceuticals, USA.
