In recent years, the importance of quality improvement and patient safety (QIPS) has become evident in healthcare in general, and in emergency medicine in particular. Though this is increasingly widely acknowledged, there is still a paucity of guiding resources as to how healthcare providers can obtain the knowledge and skills to initiate meaningful change. In order to help foster the development of QIPS, the following Resource Centre was created to guide training in the science of QIPS.
The resource centre is divided into three categories:
1. Entry Level Resources – includes articles and online modules/courses aimed at defining and providing a fundamental understanding of the core concepts of QIPS
2. Advanced Level Training – includes links to national and international courses with more in-depth education in specific QIPS methodologies or skill sets
3. Graduate Level Training – includes links to Canadian and international Masters/PhD-level training programs
We will be updating this resource centre semi-annually. However, if you feel there is a resource that should be added/removed to/from the list, please email the details to email@example.com
