Project: Improving epidural services in Yorkton Regional Health Centre

When he found out that a 2017 CIHI report said the epidural rate in Yorkton was 26%, Dr. Kasim decided to lead a CQIP project on increasing his local epidural rates to match the national and provincial rates of 60% over three years. The implementation plan included proving more education to nurses and patients, updating the admission form to capture information on whether patients want an epidural and improved coordination of care between physicians.
