HealthCareCAN and ISQua are very proud to announce our partnership to promote the improvement of healthcare quality around the world. Through this partnership, CHA Learning, the professional development division of HealthCareCAN, will annually make available five scholarships to ISQua Fellows from low and middle income countries. These scholarships will focus on learning and development in areas of quality improvement such as patient safety, patient engagement, change, leadership and management. 

Additionally, CHA Learning is committed to providing ISQua Fellows and Members discounted tuition rates. Through our partnership, HealthCareCAN and ISQua will both facilitate the global spread of such essential professional development as well as the access of lower/middle income regions where such high-quality learning would otherwise be out of reach. 

About CHA Learning:
CHA Learning, the professional development division of HealthCareCAN, is a Canadian leader in the delivery of online education to those working in healthcare and has been a trusted national learning provider to health professionals since 1951. It has made significant investments in recent years to expand its suite of essential and relevant education for those in all parts of healthcare. CHA Learning’s mandate is to develop ‘people’ capacity within the health system and this partnership is a unique and special opportunity for our organisation to not only impact the Canadian healthcare system, but to also have a positive influence on healthcare quality around the globe through a meaningful partnership with a trusted and well-respected organisation such as ISQua. We also believe we can learn from the experiences and lessons of other countries in our continuous improvement journey here in Canada.
