Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI)

Maximizing lifesaving outcomes

The Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) programs provide a high-reliability platform for simulation-based mastery learning, implemented through low-dose, high-frequency quality improvement sessions that measure and verify competence, to help healthcare providers retain life-saving skills. Co-developed by the American Heart Association (AHA) and Laerdal Medical, the RQI programs are now available to the Canadian healthcare market and supported and endorsed by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

RQI verified CPR competence is the higher standard of care, demonstrated to improve clinical care delivery and to increase survival from sudden cardiac arrest.

Big results

Low-dose, high-frequency training is the foundation of the Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) programs that measure and verify competence, to help healthcare providers retain life-saving skills.

The results speak for themselves:
  • On average, more than 97% of all RQI users remain compliant.
  • In a study done by Mercy Health, they found that 82% of users felt they were more confident in their CPR skills after using RQI.
  • Healthcare institutions using RQI see a +20% increase in survival rates from cardiac arrest.
