The SJRH Emergency Department Continuous Quality Improvement / Knowledge Transfer program provides oversight for department guidelines, audit, morbidity and mortality meetings and QUEST.

Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) represents an ongoing effort to improve patient care in a step by step fashion. The four key elements of CQI are: problem solving, interpersonal skills, teamwork and a quality improvement process.

Regular multidisciplinary CQI/KT meetings are held within the department. Please see the department calendar for the next date and contact the program lead if you are interested in attending.

This page contains quick links to our most up-to-date department guidelines and downloadable full guidelines and order-sets. Audit results are available in the Staff Area of the website
