Take the next step towards improving the health and well-being of our communities at an interactive, action-oriented session designed to facilitate the creation of a governance plan for collaborative quality improvement. 

At our Leading Together – Committed to Quality symposia this September, governors joined together to discuss the top priorities for quality improvement in each of the sub-regions across Waterloo Wellington. We heard from governors what quality means to them, and how working together has resulted in the greatest improvements to patient care locally. Those interested in leading the way forward for quality improvement in Ontario, to the benefit of our local residents, are invited to attend and will leave with a clear plan for how their organizations can come together to address a top quality priority. 

The sessions will feature a presentation by Lee Fairclough, Vice President for Quality Improvement at Health Quality Ontario on Collaborative Quality Improvement Plans (cQIP)and how boards can leverage these to achieve tangible change in the patient experience. We look forward to seeing you at the event.    

Invitees: Board members, including Board quality chairs (if applicable), CEOs/Executive Directors of primary care organizations, hospitals, home and community care, mental health and action agencies and long term care and organizational quality leads.  

Please attend the session in the area where your organization delivers most of its services. If you deliver services across sub-region areas please send representation to all of the appropriate session locations. A light dinner will be provided.
