About the Council
We provide system-wide leadership to efforts designed to improve the quality of health care in British Columbia. Through collaborative partnerships with health authorities, patients, and those working within the health care system, we promote and inform a provincially-coordinated, patient-centred approach to quality. We also provide advice and make recommendations to the Minister of Health.
We also provide a bridge to the best knowledge in health care quality available across Canada and beyond. We seek out national and international partnerships that provide knowledge and insights of value to BC, adapt these new ideas to meet the needs of our health care system, and work with our partners to put them in place.
A patient-centred, innovative, and inclusive approach from the province’s health care system is essential to improving quality of care. Drawing on its resources, relationships and the diverse expertise of its staff, the Council is at once a leader, an advisor, a partner, a facilitator, an educator and a supporter across a wide spectrum of initiatives.Learn More About Our Vision & Values
