E-QIP is a partnership project between Addictions & Mental Health Ontario, Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario, the Provincial System Support Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, and Ontario Health (Quality) to promote and support quality improvement in the community mental health and addictions sector.

E-QIP works with organizations to:

  • Build a common understanding of quality improvement in the community mental health and addiction sector

  • Gain an understanding of the full range of quality initiatives that exist in the sector

  • Promote the spread of promising practices across mental health and addictions provider agencies

  • Build capacity within the sector to utilize data sources such as the Ontario Perception of Care Survey, Ontario Common Assessment of Need, and Global Appraisal of Individual Needs

  • Share quality knowledge across our sector organizations

  • Sustain quality improvement capacity in sector organizations

  • Lay the groundwork for organizational readiness for change, including performance measurement and reporting

  • Ensure alignment with other quality improvement initiatives in Ontario

E-QIP delivers quality improvement and leadership training and provides access to advanced learning programs and data coaching support. Visit the E-QIP website for more information.
