Learning and Action Networks

Hispanic Senior Couple Diverse Support Group

The NCC QIA LANs were suspended in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back for updates in the future.

A Learning and Action Network (LAN) is a way to achieve large-scale improvement by bringing together people from within a community, including both healthcare providers and patients, to work together. It creates opportunities for sharing ideas, learning and problem solving in a given area. Network 15 currently has an active Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) LAN, as well as supporting national LAN activities related to Patient Engagement.

LANs are hosted by the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) National Coordinating Center, but invitations to join the LANs come from the Network. If you are interested in joining a LAN, please contact the Network to receive an invitation.
