The Ethics Quality Improvement Lab
Leading Change for Better Care
The Ethics Quality Improvement Lab works towards improving the quality of care for all patients at Osler and beyond. We do this through education, consultation, policy development, research, and various Ethics Quality Improvement projects that address common, systemic ethical challenges. The Ethics Quality Improvement Lab seeks to be a change leader for better care.
Ethics Quality Improvement (EQI) is an innovative approach to addressing common or recurring ethical errors. EQI is a systematic and formal approach that utilizes quality improvement tools, and principles of change management and adaptive leadership. The EQI Lab has designed and launched Accreditation Canada Leading Practices and award-winning Ethics Quality Improvement Projects that stem from the goal of ensuring our work makes a difference to patients, and the belief that we can always improve the work we do. Each project seeks to contribute to exceptional quality of care to patients through the health continuum.
