Main Two Days

The Quality Forum’s main two days of programming will take place on March 2 & 3, 2017! Add these dates to your calendar.

The Forum will feature presentations and interactive workshops on a variety of topics related to improving quality across the continuum of care. They’re a mix of content that the event’s Steering Committee felt should be showcased as well as presentations and storyboards chosen though our Call for Abstracts.

Participants will again be able to go on field trips, so that they can learn lessons from other industries that are applicable to health care. Plenary presentations, a debate and a storyboard reception will bring participants together to learn, to be entertained, and to be inspired. There are sure to be a few surprises, too!

All told, the Quality Forum is a great opportunity to learn new skills and strategies, discuss opportunities and challenges, and network with others interested in improving health care in British Columbia.
