HQO Quality Standards

HQO Quality Standards graphic

Last fall, we launched our quality standards program, outlining for patients and clinicians what quality care looks like. Quality standards focus on conditions where there are large variations in how care is delivered, or where there are gaps between the care provided and the care patients should receive.

Now, to help tackle the growing opioid problem, Health Quality Ontario is developing three sets of quality standards related to opioids. One outlines for patients and clinicians what quality care looks like for adults and adolescents with opioid use disorder, and two provide guidance on prescribing opioids for the management of chronic and acute pain.

We hope you will provide us with your feedback and by September 28th
