Meeting Description:

In the three-part Measure Testing Project Webinar Series, the American Medical Association (AMA)-convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement® (PCPI®) provides education on sample size and sampling methodology, the application for Institutional Review Board approval and the testing site solicitation process.
