Quality Improvement

Quality Improvement in Action

Brainstorming Session

We work with our partners across Ontario’s health system to build a culture of quality. Using the best available evidence, we identify opportunities and ways to improve care and patient care experiences. And we facilitate capacity building and partnerships to catalyze continuous, measureable quality improvement in patient outcomes.
