Slide deck (Prezi): 


True collaboration in healthcare is about more than like-minded people working together. True collaboration takes place when healthcare professionals from across jurisdictions and across disciplines bring to bear their unique knowledge, skills and experiences to resolve persistent challenges, perform vital functions and tackle common problems—together. This presentation will provide an overview of the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI), with specific attention to its Collaborations for Innovation and Improvement with the Northwest Territories and across Atlantic Canada. For more than a decade, the CFHI has been dedicated to accelerating healthcare improvement in Canada. We are a not-for-profit organization with collaborations across the country that include partnerships with researchers, practice leaders and front-line clinical leaders. Since our inception in the late 1990s (as the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation), we have established a pan-Canadian reach and built an international reputation.
