Recognizing Clinical Improvement

Alberta Health Services (AHS), Alberta Health and partner University strategic plans call for capacity-building in quality improvement, quality assurance, patient safety, clinical informatics, health information analytics and other domains collectively referred to as “clinical improvement science.” Key recommendations include organizational commitment, supportive governance, enabling information services, and faculty development and recognition.
Unfortunately, the contributions of clinician innovators may not be as well understood as work typically presented by “clinician educators” or “clinician researchers.” The Chief Medical Information Office (CMIO) hosts a number of programs where clinicians excel at innovation. We promote career advancement by facilitating preparation of contribution reports that align with the principles, frameworks and language of clinical improvement. See the linked guide for more information.
