Since its inception in 2016, E-QIP has advanced QI capacity in the province of Ontario through a suite of QI and data capacity building offerings including intensive QI and data coaching, a foundational QI skill building course, governance and leadership training and online communities of practice. E-QIP has also supported agencies to develop and submit annual quality improvement plans (QIP’s), a historical achievement for the community mental health and addiction sector!
The primary objectives of our current phase of work are to:
- Increase QI adoption, culture and capacity within community mental health and addiction agencies in Ontario
- Increase the uptake and use of standardized tools and use of data for decision making and QI planning within the community mental health and addiction sector, and
- Work with leaders in the community mental health and addiction sector to identify and validate QI indicators aligned to provincial priorities and embedded within a provincial performance framework to consistently measure and advance the experience of care of Ontarians accessing community based mental health and addiction services across the province
