The Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) Program

The Resuscitation Quality Improvement program is a simulation-based, mastery learning program that uses low-dose, high-frequency quarterly learning and skill sessions to achieve and verify competence in lifesaving, high-quality CPR, and to enhance skills confidence and retention. In clinical studies, RQI has been proven to improve the delivery of clinical CPR quality in sudden cardiac arrest events.
