Evidence-based Practice for Improving Quality
To address gaps in the presently available Quality Improvement methods for healthcare institutions. A scientific method for continuous quality improvement that is evidence-based, targeted, collaborative and continuous.
The EPIQ process has gained popularity across Canada and internationally with Tertiary NICUs and maternal-fetal/obstetrical units currently involved in it.
The EPIQ team is a multi-disciplinary healthcare team in the Newborn Intensive Care Units (NICU) and maternal fetal/obstetrical units that has created a national system for ongoing quality improvement in preterm neonates.
There are currently six health outcome groups each with the aim to reduce incidence of major morbidities in neonates.
We hold virtual educational sessions with expert speakers covering our 6 main health outcomes to advance best care practices.
