Webinar Recording: Improving Health Equity for Children through Quality Improvement Featured

This webinar explored challenges in providing equitable access to good quality health care in paediatric settings through panel discussion. Facilitated by Ulfat Shaikh, panellists were asked;

    • In the work that you do, what is a big challenge to addressing health equity?
    • What is a quality improvement program/intervention/innovation to address health equity for children that you believe has made a significant difference?
    • Reflecting on the quality improvement program/intervention/innovation you mentioned, what are a couple of key steps that ISQua and AAP COQIPS members can take in their own roles to help with its scale up or spread?
    • What is one piece of advice that you would like to give to people on this webinar who are just starting off on their journey to improve health equity for children through quality improvement?
