A Quality Improvement Plan is a public commitment to meet quality improvement goals.

By developing a Quality Improvement Plan, organizations such as hospitals, long-term care homes, and in primary and home care outline how they will improve the quality of care they provide to their patients, residents or clients in the coming year.
