Public health units use continuous quality improvement (CQI) to deliver, monitor, and improve their services. The 1-year Locally Driven Collaborative Project on CQI has been investigating how systematic CQI can be strengthened within Ontario’s public health units. The research project included two main components: the implementation of a QI Maturity Tool survey in 34 health units to assess the current state of CQI across the province, and a scoping review of the literature to identify drivers and enablers of CQI within public health units. This interactive webinar will provide results from the research and early ideas for the next stage of the research.
