SQUIRE stands for Standards for QUality Improvement Reporting Excellence. The SQUIRE guidelines provide a framework for reporting new knowledge about how to improve healthcare. They are intended for reports that describe system level work to improve the quality, safety, and value of healthcare.
Listen in on the SQUIRE 2.0 Webcast discussing how and why SQUIRE 2.0 was developed, the major changes to the guidelines, and how it might help you!
The new and revised SQUIRE guidelines (SQUIRE 2.0) and SQUIRE 2.0 Explanation and Elaboration are here! BMJ Quality and Safety published the new guidelines and E&E document and they are also available on our website. The 2.0 guidelines have been developed over the past 3 years with generous support from the Health Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
