Sarafina Hui, Melinda Lau, and Frieda Tsang of St. Paul's L'Amoreaux Centre were recently awarded a 2014 Alumni Achievement Award by IDEAS (Improving & Driving Excellence Across Sectors), a province-wide educational initiative to build capacity in quality improvement and change management across all health care sectors.
Their project team received one of six awards recognizing contributions to health care quality improvement (QI) in Ontario for their project Adult Day Program Utilization Improvement Project, with the goal of reducing cancellations and no-shows in Adult Day Programs. The team members are graduates of the IDEAS Advanced Learning Program.
The purpose of these awards is to promote and support sustainability and spread of IDEAS project learnings in order to build a health care culture focused on quality improvement and accountability in Ontario.
This year's awards were presented at the IDEAS Alumni Event 2014 in Toronto on November 19, 2014. Each winning project team receives a cash award to help sustain and spread their project learnings within their organization, local health system and beyond.
