Quality Forum 2019
Quality Forum 2019 brought together more than 1,200 participants over its three days. First, a “pre-Forum day” featured two full-day deep dive sessions. We again partnered with the Joint Collaborative Committees to examine successful and emerging initiatives and collaborative approaches to patient care. We also partnered with the BC Academic Health Science Network to explore the potential of learning health systems. There were also three pre-Forum field trips offered, which included a journey in support of reconciliation, a day of giving back to the community through hands-on volunteer work in the community, and an exploration of the hospitality industry to examine the dimensions of quality from new perspectives. That evening, we also hosted Health Talks, where we celebrated the achievements of our 2019 Quality Award winners and heard from nine diverse speakers on their hopes for health care.
The event’s main two days of programming welcomed more than 1,000 people from across the continuum of care and geographical regions of the province. Programming was guided by a steering committee that included representatives from provincial stakeholders and featured plenary speakers, oral and poster presentations, field trips, breakout sessions and interactive workshops on a wide range of topics related to providing quality care.
