2Hospitals/Corporate Note: Hospitals/Corporate Membership in the Florida Perinatal Quality Collaborative (FPQC) at the USF Chiles Center within the USF College of Public Health is not related in any way to the provision of medical services but provides charitable support for health care quality improvements through education and collaboration in learning activities. In particular, corporate membership and support of the FPQC does not relate in any way to any medical or other health-related services provided by any party, any affiliation or other services agreement between any parties or the referral of patients (if any) between a corporate member and the USF Morsani College of Medicine. By becoming a corporate member, you will receive advance notice of educational programs for your health care professional staff as well as routine communications regarding FPQC leadership opportunities, continuing professional education activities and updates on perinatal quality improvement initiatives. Donations are used solely to provide educational programs and opportunities for health professional staff including training scholarships and are not used in support of any USF Health clinical facilities, salary or benefits for any USF employed or contracted medical professionals. The USF Foundation is a not for profit, tax exempt, direct-support organization of the University of South Florida.
3Subcommittees Note: If possible, the Subcommittees will consist of a variety of health care practitioners as well as advocates, policymakers and payers in order to create a culture of inter-professional expertise and collaboration.
