Program Overview

Quality Forum 2014 will feature two days of presentations and interactive workshops on a variety of topics related to improving quality across the continuum of care. The event presents a great opportunity to learn new skills, discuss opportunities and challenges, and network with others interested in improving health care in British Columbia.

Here’s a Quality Forum 2014 poster that you can print and display in your workplace.

You may also be interested in attending the UBC Centre for Health Services and Policy Research’s annual conference. It takes place on February 25 – the day before Quality Forum 2014 kicks off – at the same venue as our event.
