The 5th annual Fraser Health Patient Experience Conference (#PtExConf) promises to be even bigger and better than last year! With space for 900 attendees over three days, staff, physicians and executive members will be excited to see what is planned in regards to the lineup of groundbreaking and engaging keynote speakers, and up to 40 oral and 60 poster presentations.

This event is meant to showcase new and innovative ways in which Fraser Health is working to create a better health care system for clients. This year the focus of the event is innovation. Fraser Health wants to demonstrate that quality outcomes are always possible when we work together.
This event is focused on staff and physicians that are passionate about achieving quality and safety through innovation!
On November 9, the Patient Experience Conference will explore health care for Indigenous Peoples. For the first time in the history of these conferences, the event will dedicate a full day to exploring the unique health experiences of Indigenous patients. The conference’s Aboriginal day is an important opportunity to discuss how we as health care providers can improve care for our Indigenous patients. By learning more about the health experiences of Indigenous people in our care, we are also contributing towards Fraser Health’s commitment of quality, patient-centred and culturally safe care for all people in our region.
The day will feature engaging speakers and performers, including Fraser Health Board Member Willie Charlie; traditional Salish song and dance group Tsatsu Stalqayu; Métis artist Lisa Shepherd; and more. A thought-provoking panel of three First Nation Elders and two Métis Elders will be a conference highlight with moderation by Fraser Health’s new Executive Director of Aboriginal Health Carolyne Neufeld. Through their wisdom and experience as knowledge keepers, the Elders will discuss their perspectives on the past, present and future of the Aboriginal health landscape.
To tie in with the conference theme of Achieving Quality and Safety through Innovation, the Aboriginal day explores the concept of innovation from a variety of perspectives. Physicians, Nations, communities, patients and health care providers will come together and share their ideas on positive changes for the health care system.
Don’t miss the chance to participate. This year, single-day conference tickets are available. Register to attend Aboriginal Day at the Patient Experience Conference.
