Quality Enhancement Research Initiative

Implementation and Evaluation Resources

Promoting the use of implementation, evaluation, and quality improvement (QI) methods to optimize system improvement efforts

QUERI is funding two field-based resource centers – CEIR and EPIC – to provide expertise, training, and evaluation to researchers, providers and other frontline staff, managers, and health system leaders to enhance implementation, evaluation, and QI efforts across VA and accelerate systemwide care improvements. 


QUERI’s Center for Evaluation and Implementation Resources (CEIR) provides time-sensitive consultation and support to help VA operations leaders, policymakers, managers, and providers scale-up and spread promising innovations and effective policies, programs, and practices.

If you are a VA employee interested in learning more about implementation practice, evaluation, and QI, contact CEIR ( for a free consultation.
