Quality Standards are a new form of evidence-based guidance developed by Health Quality Ontario in topics that are identified as high priority areas for quality improvement in Ontario. Quality Standards are intended to support health care professionals in providing the best care possible, and to help patients, caregivers and the public know what kind of care they should expect. It is with time we have realized that a more comprehensive approach is required to improve the care of those with psychosis. Currently, there is an emphasis on developing and testing care pathways in health. These pathways map the journey of a person with psychosis through the care system. The aim of a care pathway is to enhance the quality of care across the continuum by improving risk-adjusted patient outcomes, promoting patient safety, increasing patient satisfaction, and optimizing the use of resources.??? Recently the Health Quality Ontario has taken the initiative to come up with care pathways for individuals with Schizophrenia in attempt to standardize care across the province. There are 11 Quality Standards in this pathway which range from providing comprehensive physical health assessment to discharge planning on the continuum.
