NSQIP in British Columbia has expanded dramatically since two hospitals started the program in 2006. The initial period saw a growth in the number of participating hospitals from those 2 to 25 in 2014. BC’s NSQIP sites responded to the challenge of reacting in a timely manner to their initial data and have worked towards improving patient care across all areas of surgery. In these past three and a half years, gains have been made in several areas that have improved patient outcomes, reduced complications and saved lives.
