Abstract

The concept of quality improvement (QI) embraces a systematic approach using specific techniques to improve quality. The objective of this non-systematic review article is to present one concept of QI in healthcare and its application in pediatric anesthesia. As can be shown, QI is well established in pediatric anesthesia. ‘Plan-Do-Study-Act’ cycles, an approach for improvement in health care in which one learns from taking action, are considered a feasible tool. Quality improvement models do not replace clinical research and scientific publishing, but promote the implementation of new findings into clinical practices.
