Tackling Implementation
Issues
Together

I-VAC’s implementation support is made up of a series of learning collaborative sessions open to all providers and provider organizations, regardless of participation in COVID-19 Vaccine Bootcamps. Each learning collaborative session will focus on the practical issues of COVID-19 vaccine implementation, through a forum for providers to engage with their peers to solve the real-world barriers to implementation within their clinics and hospitals. All participants must register for I-VAC learning collaboration sessions. Those providers or provider organizations who did not participate in an I-VAC COVID-19 Vaccine Bootcamp must also complete a vaccine readiness survey which will be provided after registration.

Focusing on the Practical
Issues of
COVID-19 Vaccine
Implementation

Each learning collaborative session will be specifically designed around different types of patient populations served in the medical setting. There will be three separate learning collaboratives, each tailored to providers serving different patient populations, i.e., children and adolescents, adults, and pregnant women.  Trained facilitator teams will start each session with a very brief didactic on different best practices related to COVID-19 vaccine implementation. The remainder of the session is open for participants to share their cases or operational challenges. Following the didactic, participants will have an opportunity to share cases, stories, about the challenges that they have encountered.

Openly Discuss
Real-World Challenges
with Your Peers

We modeled our learning collaborative sessions after medical rounds, allowing participants to directly apply the knowledge they’ve gained to their own practice. Participants can openly discuss the real-world challenges of implementing recommended best practices and get advice from peers who have experienced similar situations. The learning collaboratives use the Extension for Community Health Outcomes (ECHO) model, which is a unique telementoring model based on “virtual rounding” that supports participants in applying the knowledge gained and openly discussing real-world challenges to implementing recommended best practices.  Through these discussions, the series facilitators and participants draw on their own experience to support each other and share strategies that they have found to be successful in navigating barriers.

Learning collaborative sessions will be offered bi-weekly using a dedicated Zoom invite, on an ongoing basis. Providers are not required to attend each session, but can drop in as their schedule allows or when they need additional guidance or implementation support. These sessions will be available to all bootcamp cohorts and any provider or provider organization who wishes to participate.
