The Centre for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (CQuIPS)
is a joint partnership between the University of Toronto’s Temerty Faculty of Medicine and three of its major teaching hospitals, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, the Hospital for Sick Children (‘SickKids’) and Women’s College Hospital. The University constituted CQuIPS as an extra-departmental unit (‘EDU’), defined as a flexible, multidisciplinary entity organized around emerging areas of research and teaching that span traditional disciplines.
Everyone striving for better health outcomes for all
To accelerate and deepen the work of people and organizations that are passionate about enhancing quality and patient safety
CQuIPS is an extra-departmental unit (EDU), defined by the University as a flexible, multidisciplinary entity organized around emerging research and teaching areas that cut across traditional disciplines and departments. The University constituted CQuIPS as an EDU:C, meaning that we do not appoint faculty members or admit students. Consistent with the model for other multi-departmental academic units at the University of Toronto, the governance of the Centre for Patient Safety consists of an executive committee and an advisory council.
