The Physician Quality Improvement Program, a partnership between the Doctors of BC, Specialist Services Committee and Island Health, supports physicians leading quality improvement projects. Since 2016, Island Health physicians have had the opportunity to sign-up for organized QI training and support to lead a QI project in their area of clinical expertise. With the support of the Specialist Services Committee this program is now in its third year.
For example, Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment, umbilical cord clamping, opioid substitution therapy and pre-surgery preparation provide just a brief snapshot of the the exciting work physicians lead in the PQI program.
Medical staff should reach out to the Physician Quality Improvement Program if they have any questions or are interested in leading their own QI project.
