AzAHQ's Preparation Support

Study Group

For those who are more than just a little Quality Curious but haven’t yet gotten certified, the CPHQ® exam can seem extremely intimidating.  If you’ve been thinking about getting your CPHQ® but aren’t sure where to begin, AzAHQ is offering an excellent opportunity.  We are very excited to announce a CPHQ® Prep Study Group!  Two five-session series (held on Saturdays) will be facilitated by our very own Dr. Nancy Claflin!  Dr. Claflin is a nationally recognized expert in healthcare quality.  She is former President (and current Fellow) of the National Association for Healthcare Quality, two-time President of AzAHQ, and has graciously offered her time in support of growing our professional community.

This offer is exclusively for AzAHQ members and is at no additional charge!  Please find out more by sending an email to with the subject “CPHQ Study Group.”
