At its September 2016 meeting, the APA Practice Organization (APAPO) Board of Directors voted to approve development of a qualified clinical data registry (QCDR) to assist psychologists with reporting quality measures to payers. To facilitate and direct that work, an Advisory Committee will be formed to define, develop, and/or select the measures that are of the most interest and importance to psychology. Nominations and supporting materials should be sent via email correspondence by Feb 15, 2017.
The Advisory Steering Committee for Clinical Practice Guideline Development is accepting self-nominations through November 15. Clinicians and individuals who represent a wide breadth of diversity are especially encouraged to submit a nomination.
All application materials for new Fellows should be submitted by December 31st so that the Division 19 Fellows Committee will have sufficient time to screen the
applications and endorse those who pass this screen before the APA Fellows
Committee conducts its own review in March of the following year.
