To improve care, organizations must adopt a culture of quality.
A key tool to support the development of a culture of quality is the provincial Quality Improvement Plan (QIP). QIPs are a formal blueprint on how a health care organization will address quality issues and meet its quality improvement goals. Through the development of the plan, the organization demonstrates a public commitment to improving the quality of care it provides to its patients, residents or clients.
This session will highlight some of the different ways organizations are using the QIP to support the development of a culture of quality. Discussion will highlight the ways QIPs support are being used to:
- Support cross-sector collaboration on shared regional goals
- Embed patient engagement in quality
Finally, this session will profile some of the collaborative work being done with LHINs to support alignment between local and provincial efforts.
Health care leaders, clinicians and quality improvement professionals, patients/clients/residents and caregivers
