PROTECT Immunization Modules

The AOA has added three modules to the CAP to help you measure your practice’s immunization effectiveness and find meaningful methods of improvement. These free, online assessment tools will help us reach our common goal of improving immunization rates, while giving you the opportunity to earn up to 60 Category 1B CME credits. The CAP PROTECT modules are:

  • Childhood Immunizations

  • Immunizations for Adolescents

  • Immunizations in High-Risk Adults

Three-Stage Process

The CAP PROTECT modules are designed to show you how effective your practice is at maximizing the protective power of vaccines. They can also help you develop strategies for improving immunization rates in your practice. The modules have three stages:

1. Assess Performance. Get a snapshot of your practice’s current performance through a self-assessment survey and 20 patient chart reviews. You’ll also receive a performance analysis report comparing your performance with other participants' and national benchmarks.

2. Build and Implement Action Plan. Select educational interventions and practice improvement steps to create an action plan for improvement, based on your results from Step One.

3. Reassess Performance. Analyze data from 20 new charts to generate a comparison report. You’ll see your practice’s improvement - and earn 20 Category 1B CME credits.
