NAHQ Code of Ethics for the Healthcare Quality Profession and Code of Conduct
A healthcare quality professional — regardless of his or her specific practice setting, organization size, or portfolio of work — is dedicated to improving clinical outcomes, reducing systemic waste, and ensuring stakeholder engagement and satisfaction. This purpose is often, but not always, captured in a specific quality role. A healthcare quality professional is defined by his or her purpose and not by a job description. The NAHQ Code of Ethics informs individual decision-making about ethical situations within a given role or relationship.
