Project main description
How do we know if clinical practice delivered really complies with evidence of best practice? Clinical quality indicators (CQI) are measures designed to answer that question, but CQI themselves are not always developed through a rigorous and evidence-based process.
This project aims to understand the current quality of CQI, best practices and so that we can efficiently create robust and effective CQI that dierctly improve patient safety and quality of healthcare.
