This infographic aims to enhance patient safety through better and more consistent quality assurance in pathology across Canada
This infographic shows how the quality assurance recommendations were developed through a multi-pronged process. That process included an environmental scan, expert opinion from the Quality Initiative for Interpretive Pathology (QIIP) Thought Leaders and a customized Delphi process.
QIIP began in 2013, when the Partnership and the Canadian Association of Pathologists (CAP-ACP) came together to improve the quality of interpretive pathology in Canada.
QIIP released its recommendations in 2016. The recommendations framework is the first of its kind in Canada. The framework helps jurisdictions incorporate the recommendations into both new and existing programs about quality.
