QuIPS – The Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Conference was first held in 2011. Now in its fifth year, QuIPS is an inter-disciplinary conference focused on quality improvement and patient safety held in the heart of downtown Toronto. Up to two hundred students and healthcare professionals from the greater Toronto area and beyond are expected to gather 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 theme of the 2015 QuIPS conference is ‘Efficiency‘. The conference aims to:

 Highlight the concept of efficiency and define its constructs

 Explore “doing the right thing” with limited resources

 Explore concepts of “quality”, “cost”, and “value” within healthcare 

The conference is a student-organized and faculty-supported event. Registration fees are $40 for UTIHI student members, and $50 for UTIHI student non-members.
