Welcome to the Centre for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (C-QuIPS)



This video was showcased at the Annual Institute for Healthcare Improvement Conference in Orlando, Florida in 2010 as a part of a series profiling organizations doing innovative work in patient safety and quality improvement. The Centre was the only non-US organization spotlighted in the series and was chosen based on our work in building capacity and engaging faculty in patient safety efforts.
