Q vs QP If the strong side's pawn is not well-advanced,is it possible for the weak side to always get a draw through perpetual check? Or is there a technique for the QP to avoid this? Assuming all the pieces are scattered around the board with no skewers possible,etc.

??? Your subject is a little vague. Do you mean Q vs.Q+P?

Q vs Q+P is normally a draw.
if the pawn is a bishop pawn or centre pawn on the seventh rank and supported by the king, then the Q+P should win.
So in answer to your question - if the pawn is not well advanced then the usual outcome is a draw because the lone Q has checks and pins on the pawn readily available, therefore preventing the pawn from advancing.
A queen + knightpawn or rookpawn even on the seventh rank will usually only draw because the lone queen has perpetual check available.
