E-QIP Governance and Leadership Board Training (options)

Our governance and leadership training is delivered to senior teams within an agency and/or the board of directors. We provide a general overview of QI, how it can support organizational and strategic priorities and the role of senior leaders.  It can also be customized to your agency’s needs based on where you are in QI culture and in performance management.  The training usually takes approximately an hour to deliver and will include:

  • Provincial context for quality improvement and measurement
  • Link between quality improvement, performance reporting and organizational and system priorities
  • Overview of building a Quality Culture and whole system quality
  • The role of the board and Senior leaders
  • Discussion about E-QIP and how it can be of assistance

This session will provide an overview of system priorities and context, important issues, skills and functions that support an agency-wide culture of quality and the use of data for decision making. Specifically, the session could include any or all of the following objectives:

  1. Educate the board on QI and their role in facilitating and leading QI within the agency
  2. Learn about Whole System Quality
