Quality Improvement Survey for Ontario Physicians

The Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME) at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (DLSPH), University of Toronto is collaborating with the Ontario Medical Association and Health Quality Ontario, with support from the Ontario Hospital Association, to learn about physicians’ interests, opportunities, and barriers to participating in quality improvement (QI). QI is important in clinical practice and essential for Ontario Health Teams.

QI may help reduce frustration in clinical practice.  Giving doctors more control over care delivery may reduce burnout. Data collected in this survey will be used to identify areas where we can develop interventions to better support the profession in the future.

This survey is anonymous. No personal identifiers are being collected. This survey is being distributed to all Ontario physicians.  Responses will be aggregated to inform future recommendations.

This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. By completing this survey, you are consenting to participate. The survey must be completed in one sitting, as the session will timeout after 20 minutes of inactivity. You must complete all questions to proceed to the next page. You can discontinue completion of the survey at any time by simply exiting the link and closing your web browser. Responses are only saved when you press the ‘next’ button at the bottom of each page. If you do not fully complete the survey, your responses are automatically deleted.

Your responses to the survey will be combined with the responses of others.
