QuILT: Quality Improvement in Labour & Delivery Transfers and Consults


QuILT brings family doctors, midwives, nurses, obstericians and other clinicians together with education researchers to tackle a common challenge: how to safely and respectfully complete transfers of care and consults on the labour and delivery unit.

Using a powerful approach – institutional ethnography – to map work processes and identify opportunities for change, QuILT has produced knowledge we can use to develop simulation-based education to support targeted improvement, and to inform policy changes on the unit.

QuILT merges practical knowledge, education science, and simulation to improve care for moms and babies.
