A brief description of each project is provided below:

The learning design for these projects is unique in that it is guided by a Knowledge Translation/Quality Improvement integrated approach.  A review of literature demonstrated the use of both Knowledge Translation (KT) and Quality Improvement (QI) being applied to diverse patient clinical situations for improvement of patient outcomes, but although both are supported by their own evidence Koczwara and colleagues describe the connection between these fields as "Although the goals of the two fields seem complementary, they interact only sporadically and superficially, often at odds, and remain isolated from each other not only through their distinct methodology, but also through their effect on and engagement with the healthcare system." (Koczwara et al, 2018).

As such, CPSI has consulted with the Center for Implementation and to identifying synergies between knowledge translation and quality improvement that will leverage the strengths of each field for greater impact in patient safety.
