The Centre made a strategic decision to focus on capacity building through education and training in the methods of quality improvement. Equipping a cadre of individuals from a wide range of clinical settings to develop improvement projects in their own clinical settings (sometimes in partnership with experts for CQuIPS) offered the opportunity for local improvements and academic productivity.

C-QuIPS Research

Core and affiliated members engage in a broad range of research, mostly in the acute care setting, but also focused on improved care coordination and transitions across settings of care. Specific research topics include clinical informatics, medication safety, usability and human factors engineering, fatigue, handoffs between providers, innovative models for teaching the concepts and methods of quality improvement, and improving methods for identifying patient safety problems.
