Finding an effective approach to engage staff in quality management can be challenging. Try creating an environment that encourages participation through team building activities where staff are empowered to contribute to quality conversations and improvement.

On November 30, 2020, IQMH and Accreditation Canada moved forward with their planned integration by welcoming the IQMH Centre for Accreditation to the Accreditation Canada family. IQMH Centre for Accreditation has been rebranded as Accreditation Canada (AC) Diagnostics. The IQMH Centre for Education and Echocardiography (EQI) services are also part of this transfer, while the IQMH Centre for Proficiency Testing remains within IQMH as a controlled affiliate of Accreditation Canada.
In the fall of 2019, Accreditation Canada (AC) and the Institute for Quality Management in Healthcare (IQMH) announced an agreement to join forces bringing the longest standing healthcare accreditation body in Canada and Canada’s largest provider of medical laboratory accreditation and proficiency testing together. In October 2019, IQMH became a controlled affiliate of AC to advance a common goal of improving the quality of healthcare in Canada and around the world.
To defeat COVID-19 everyone has to do their part. Accreditation Canada, Health Standards Organization Institute for Quality Management in Healthcare and our partners have released a suite of resources to support health care and social service workers and their organizations.
