This year, the Quality Forum will feature full-day sessions on Tuesday, February 25, 2020. These sessions will be an occasion to bring together stakeholders who want to learn about a specific subject more deeply than would be possible in a one- or two-hour breakout session.
Creating Connections for Health
In partnership with the Joint Collaborative Committees (JCCs)
Whether you’re engaged in QI for primary care transformation, facility-based care, or collaborative solutions to improve access and integration of our health care system, this year’s JCC pre-Forum offers learning experiences for all.
Interactive presentations, workshops and storyboards will demonstrate how providers, partners, patients and families are creating connections to improve care. Connections highlighted include the work of partnerships, teams, and networks as just a few examples of how collaborative efforts and shared goals are benefiting those accessing and working in our health care system.
You will have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others, their strategies and successes, as well as challenges that could potentially steer you off course. Resources will also be shared to help facilitate the spread of initiatives and best practices from community to community. Learn more.
Unleashing Compassion to Overcome Burnout
This highly interactive pre-Forum session will flip the script on the burnout conversation and explore how we can unleash compassion for ourselves and for each other to create more engaging, joyful and fulfilling workplaces. Join us as we dive deep to not only understand what individuals can do to improve their well-being, but also what system-level factors can be leveraged to establish a more compassionate culture as an antidote for burnout. You will leave this session feeling energized and equipped to put evidence into practice when it comes to building resiliency, reducing the likelihood of experiencing burnout and supporting recovery from burnout to return to wellness.

A Visit to Lu’ma Medical Centre: Ushering in a New Age of Culturally Safe & Integrated Primary Care
In partnership with the First Nations Health Authority and Lu’ma Native Housing Society
British Columbia is pursuing new models of care delivery to better support the health and wellness goals of the people we serve now and into the future. The development of an integrated system of primary and community care through Primary Care Networks (PCNs) offers an innovative approach to delivering care aimed at advancing the quality of services. Within the PCN context, there are numerous models of care delivery, including First Nations-led Primary Care Centres (FNPCC). These centres provide a vital means for translating reconciliation into action and advancing cultural safety and humility throughout the province. Join us for a special opportunity to learn from one shining example of First Nations’ led primary care. The day will involve a tour of the Lu’ma Medical Centre – a one-stop, integrated support for Indigenous people and families that is part of a primary care network serving the urban Vancouver community – and a deep dive into the strategies and partnerships at the root of its development and ongoing operations.

Bold ideas. Stories that inspire.
In the evening, we will once again host Health Talks, where we celebrate great work taking place in our communities and hear from eight speakers who tell us about their hopes for health care.
