CANADIAN VASCULAR QUALITY INITIATIVE
The Canadian Vascular Quality Initiative is a Canada-wide voluntary, cooperative group of clinicians, hospital administrators, and research personnel organized to improve the care of patients with vascular disease.
Our goal is to improve outcomes for our patients and to explore the factors that predict the best outcomes. We take advantage of the rapidly accumulating data that come from collaboration with other interested groups.
By collecting and exchanging information, our group strives to continuously improve the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of caring for patients with vascular disease.
