    [Excerpt from publisher]The Quality Worklife - Quality Healthcare Collaborative QWQHC) grew and evolved out of an overwhelming and widely-held recognition that urgent action was needed to coordinate, integrate and share learning aimed at more effectively and more expeditiously improving the quality of worklife (QWL) in healthcare. The QWQHC operates from a shared belief that it is unacceptable to fund, govern, manage, work in or receive care in an unhealthy healthcare workplace. To support these fundamentals, the QWQHC has identified several evidence-informed strategies to provide leaders with ideas on where to begin and how to achieve success. The culmination of these ideas, tools and strategies for change is presented in Within Our Grasp: A Healthy Workplace Action Strategy for Success and Sustainability in Canada's Healthcare System.
