The responsibility of the Patient Safety and Continuous Quality Improvement committee (PS & CQI) is to monitor all orthopaedic activities and then to suggest and implement improvements. Our goals are to improve treatment results and the patient experience while reducing adverse events/complications. This process involves a committed group of surgeons, nurses, residents, physician assistants and PhD research experts who meet monthly.
The committee liaises with other Hospital Departments and Divisions to combine efforts and avoid duplication as we pursue our aim to meet/exceed Provincial, National and International Standards.
