The Excellence through Quality Improvement Project (E-QIP) will be offering free training sessions for community mental health and addictions providers in Sudbury and Toronto in the next few weeks.
The course, set for July 23 in Sudbury and Aug. 15 in Toronto, is part of the Improving & Driving Excellence Across Sectors (IDEAS) quality improvement training program designed specifically for health care professionals. This foundations course introduces quality improvement concepts and vocabulary as well as practical tools using case examples and agency-identified quality improvement issues.
This training, specifically adapted for E-QIP, is a combination of theory and hands-on work which encourages participants to actively engage with a variety of quality improvement tools. Participants are expected to complete a series of online modules as well as participate in an eight-hour, in-person workshop. Following completion, participants are well equipped to share their quality improvement knowledge and initiate projects at their home agencies.
To date, E-QIP has delivered this foundational training to more than 1,000 community mental health and addiction providers in a variety of roles including front-line and senior leadership team members.
The Excellence through Quality Improvement Project is a partnership between Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario Division and Addictions and Mental Health Ontario. E-QIP is dedicated to working with the community mental health and addiction sector to apply quality improvement methods and to increase the quality of care across on Ontario.
