National Quality Strategy Will Promote Better Health, Quality Care for Americans
Created under the Affordable Care Act, first-ever strategy will guide local, state, and national efforts to improve quality of care.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the National Strategy for Quality Improvement in Health Care (National Quality Strategy). The strategy was called for under the Affordable Care Act and is the first effort to create national aims and priorities to guide local, state, and national efforts to improve the quality of health care in the United States.

Online Training: Teen Dating Violence Prevention 

It is important to begin to teach teens about safe and respectful relationships early - before they begin to date.

Teen dating violence is a growing public health issue. In a nationwide survey of students in grades 9-12, nearly one in 10 students reported being hit or physically hurt on purpose by a boyfriend or girlfriend at least once in the past 12 months.

Dating Matters: Understanding Teen Dating Violence Prevention is a 60-minute, interactive training designed to help educators, youth-serving organizations, and others working with teens understand the risk factors and warning signs associated with teen dating violence.

Developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in partnership with Liz Claiborne Inc., Dating Matters also will highlight the importance of promoting healthy relationships.

Dating Matters takes place in a virtual school setting, complete with navigation through school hallways and classrooms. A teacher's whiteboard presents information in a user-friendly way and provide navigation, help, and interactive resources for use throughout the course.
