Delivering high-quality care is about more than just appropriately providing care to those who require it in an equitable and safe fashion. It is also about not providing treatments, procedures or tests that are deemed to be unnecessary, or potentially harmful to patients.

Quality Improvement Plans Having an Impact

Lee Fairclough

We would like to congratulate the more than 1000 healthcare organizations who submitted their Quality Improvement Plans (QIPs) for 2017/18

These plans and the recently published reports documenting work over the previous year are not only tangible evidence of the growing quality care culture in Ontario, they also deserve careful review because they show how specific organizations in the various sectors are translating the principles of quality care to make real change at the community level. The lessons and successes from these organizations can benefit others
