Engaging People in Quality (EPIQ)
Engaging People in Improving Quality (EPIQ) is designed to help bring people along on the journey to quality improvement and guide improvement efforts within the context of health care. Designed as a teaching resource for those who want to spread knowledge of quality improvement in health care, EPIQ is intended to make teaching others easier to do by providing teaching materials, including slides, speaking notes, and activities.
EPIQ contains a series of modules focused on increasing understanding of and engagement with quality improvement in health care. The objectives of the EPIQ module series are to:
- Provide a set of instructional tools and resources to facilitate learning about quality improvement;
- Support the understanding of basic quality improvement principles and methods, as well as the multiple dimensions of quality in health care; and
- Increase capacity and capability for patient safety and quality improvement in BC’s health care system.
There are four modules within the EPIQ teaching toolkit, each with a different focus for learning. Each module contains foundational information for learning about quality improvement, as well as a variety of activities, discussion topics, and additional resources to support its content.

The target audience for these modules includes anyone who works in health care that is interested in learning more about how to make improvements in their work. The audience could be small or large – the content, materials, and approaches can all be adapted to suit the different needs of each group.Download the complete EPIQ Teaching Toolkit
