Improving Patient Care
Patients and families at the heart of our work
Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region (RQHR) is improving how we do our work so that it’s focused on what patients, residents, clients and their families want and need from a health care system.
We are using proven improvement approaches to tackle problems as we work with patients and their families to create a patient-centred culture.
Our goal is to provide reliable, safe and timely care for every patient.
These improvement methods are helping us reduce waits for services, ensure tests and procedures are appropriate, address activities which
may cause harm to patients or staff, create more time for caregivers to be with their patients, and build better teams.
Our journey is part of a province-wide initiative to continuously improve the health care system.
RQHR welcomes patients, residents, clients and their families to participate in improvement work. Please contact us if you’re interested.
