Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) refers to a system of regular reflection and refinement to improve processes and outcomes that will provide quality health care. An increased focus on integrating CQI into the operations of primary health care providers to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people has been shown to yield substantial benefits

Our goal is to make CQI everyone’s business. The conference will provide opportunities for participants to:

  • share knowledge about how best to embed CQI into everyday practice, ensuring better access to the highest-quality and comprehensive primary health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities including health promotion, dental health, social emotional wellbeing, alcohol and other drug programs (among others)
  • learn about successful CQI examples and how best to transfer this knowledge to others working in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing space.  

The CQI conference has been developed for service providers, including community-based community controlled services and government agencies, along with researchers, health industry and policy development government departments.

  • CQI practice at local and/or regional level
