Practising What We Preach: How we improved the publication guidelines for quality improvement research
SQUIRE stands for Standards for QUality Improvement Reporting Excellence. The SQUIRE reporting guidelines provide a framework for writing about healthcare improvement research. They are intended to guide the writing of papers about system level work to improve quality, safety, and value.

The talk will describe how the SQUIRE team has significantly improved guidance on three key components

The use of theory in planning, implementing, and evaluating quality improvement work
The description of the context of the research
The study of the intervention(s).

It will include examples from the literature demonstrating how these components work together in a completed manuscript.
