CQI is a skillset all FM graduates should master. Whether working within your own practice or working within an organization, graduates will need to evaluate and improve on their personal or organizational practices to ensure best care for their patients. Further, the Ministry of Health (Ontario) requires Family Health Teams (FHT) to provide progress on CQI initiatives relating to specific metrics. It is essential for physicians to regularly ask questions and to plan, implement, and monitor progress in different endeavours.
