The Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QuIPS) Conference is an interdisciplinary conference focused on Quality Improvement and Patient Safety held annually in the heart of downtown Toronto. Hundreds of students and healthcare professionals from the greater Toronto area and beyond are expected to assemble for this conference. Here they have the opportunity to contribute to discussions of healthcare improvement and to network with peers, collaborators and potential employers. The conference features keynote speakers, panel discussions, interactive breakout sessions, quality improvement and research projects, and networking opportunities.

QuIPS brings together students and healthcare professionals in many different disciplines, including medicine, pharmacy, nursing, engineering, management (and many more!), to have stimulating discussions of how innovation can facilitate or hinder healthcare improvement through the lens of nine qualities of a high-performing healthcare system – safety, accessibility, effectiveness, efficiency, patient‐centeredness, equity, appropriate resources, integration, and focus on population health.

The 4th Annual Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QuIPS) Student Conference will be held on May 2nd and 3rd, 2014. More information will be posted soon.
