Quality Forum Program

The Quality Forum took place from March 1-3, 2017!

On March 1 participants attended pre-Forum sessions as well as Health Talks, an evening event where eight speakers share their hopes for health care.

And on March 2 and 3, the event’s main two days, the Forum featured presentations and interactive workshops on a variety of topics related to improving quality across the continuum of care. They were 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 went on field trips, so that they could learn lessons from other industries that are applicable to health care. Plenary presentations, a debate and a storyboard reception brought participants together to learn, to be entertained, and to be inspired. There were a few surprises, too!

All told, the Quality Forum was 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.
