Our Vision & Values

Font Size:

We believe a patient-centred, innovative, and inclusive approach from the province’s health care system is essential to improving quality of care.

Our vision is high quality and sustainable health care for all.

“The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council provides key infrastructure that brings together people and organizations from across the province in the common pursuit of health quality. Working collectively, we can accelerate and improve our best efforts for the benefit of all British Columbians.”

Doug Cochrane
Chair, BCPSQC, and Provincial Patient Safety & Quality Officer

We work throughout our province’s health care system.

Our work takes its shape from the priorities of British Columbia’s health care system. We move to where we are needed, collaborating with patients, caregivers, the public and those working across all areas of care in our relentless pursuit of quality.

We have seen an increasing number of individuals and organizations become engaged in creating a patient-centred health care system and improving the quality of care. We are thrilled and motivated by the growth of this improvement community, and will continue to provide leadership and build connections to support these dedicated stakeholders.

We help make high quality care a reality.

Quality care is acceptable, appropriate and accessible. It is safe and effective. It is equitable and efficient. It recognizes that every patient has a unique journey, that local context is key, and that everyone touched by the system needs to be engaged in collaborative partnership to achieve high quality and sustainable health care for all. We help make quality care a reality by partnering with each of British Columbia’s health authorities, with health organizations and academic institutions, and with all who share our passion.

We believe a patient- and family-centred and inclusive approach is essential to improving quality of care.

Better health care is achieved through engaging patients, caregivers and the public as partners in care. We engage patients and caregivers in our work, and provide support and resources so that they are meaningfully included in activities led by health care organizations throughout the province.
