The training is based on the Health Quality Ontario & University of Toronto program called IDEAS. Classes will be 1-day in duration with a ‘homework’ component and follow-up on the web-based E-QIP Collaborative Community of Practice.

This FREE, full day, quality improvement training program will provide participants with an overview and practical applications of quality improvement methods, tools and techniques. The program has been adapted to relate to community mental health and addictions service providers. The program will review the purpose and background of quality improvement methods, specific tools to diagnose quality improvement problems within an organization, and provide information on how to generate and implement change ideas that can improve client care.

All sessions will occur over a full day (from 8:30 – 5:00 pm), with some pre-work and post-program follow up required from participants. Lunch will be included for all sessions.
