About Us

    Best Practice in Surgery is the University of Toronto Department of Surgery's quality improvement program and has replaced Best Practice in General Surgery (BPIGS). The Best Practice in General Surgery (BPIGS) initiative began in 2006 with the aim of standardizing care based on best-evidence in the Divisions of General Surgery at the University of Toronto adult teaching hospitals. Building on the success of BPIGS, we have now initiated Best Practice in Surgery.


Vision Statement

To ensure all patients having surgery at the University of Toronto affiliated hospitals receive high quality, person-centered care resulting in optimal patient and clinical outcomes.
