Quality Improvement projects

If you are conducting a quality improvement (QI) project at The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) or University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI), or if you are unsure if your project is QI or research, please complete the QI checklist and submit to REBAdministration@ohri.ca. Your submission must also include a copy of your project protocol for Chair review.

After review, you will receive an email confirming your project is either research requiring REB review/approval, or QI requiring registration with the applicable QI office:

  • For QI projects occurring at TOH, visit the TOH QI SharePoint site to register the project and/or contact the TOH Quality Office for more information at quality@toh.ca.
  • For QI projects occurring at the UOHI, register the project with the UOHI Quality Office at quality@ottawaheart.ca.
