“Participating in the IHI Summit on Improving Patient Care in the Office Practice and the Community was invaluable in offering me the opportunity to engage with researchers and front line service providers who shared projects, tools, and ideas that worked for them. The  quality of material and diversity of participants meant I returned to my workplace with tools and ideas directly relevant to improvement in our office.”

- Anne Phillips, Clinical Service Manager, Guelph Community Health Centre

“The courses offered by IHI provided us with the knowledge and tools required to make sustainable improvements within our organization and the confidence to lead change within our community.”

- Lise Hancock, Director of Service, Independent Living Centre Waterloo Region

“The online IHI modules are an easy way to fit in small bursts of theory into my week.  The modules reassure me that my approaches to improvement work are grounded in the history and science behind quality improvement methodology.  The PDSA cycle developed by Deming continues to be a foundational approach
to testing change ideas and innovations in all of my work.”

- Julie Nicholls, Quality Improvement Specialist, Health Quality Ontario


“The courses through IHI Open School gave me the knowledge needed to work effectively on Quality Improvement initiatives with a diverse group of staff who made up our Quality Improvement (QI) Team. I was able to impart my learnings from the IHI courses to the QI team who then led the quality improvement projects within specific program areas.  The results of our initiatives have had a positive impact on the quality of service provided to program participants and a positive impact on the work environment for staff.”

- Kari Simpson, CEO, East Wellington Community Services
