Learning and Action Networks

A Learning and Action Network is an improvement initiative that brings together health care professionals, patients and other stakeholders around an evidence-based agenda to achieve rapid, widescale improvement. The LAN model includes collaborative projects, online interactions and peer-to-peer education to facilitate shared commitment, energy and knowledge that allows participants to learn from each other.

Maternal-Child Learning Action Network

The Maternal and Child Learning Action Network provides guidance, knowledge-sharing and peer support in developing strategic quality initiatives based on the Triple Aim principles of improving and evaluating perinatal quality and population-based programs. The MC LAN provides strategic guidance and focus of high-value opportunities to improve clinical, operational and outcome performance, and to develop collaborative partnerships to achieve these aims. In addition, the committee partners with the communities they serve to achieve better communication, and educate and impact the public on quality and safety initiatives of the health care community. This committee meets three times a year with additional virtual platform meetings as needed.
