Quality Forum

The Quality Forum is our annual three-day conference. The first day hosts full-day sessions that “dive deep” into timely topics, as well as our evening Health Talks event. The following two days feature the Quality Forum’s main programming: plenary speakers, presentations and interactive workshops on topics related to improving quality across the continuum of care.

The next Quality Forum will take place from February 21-23, 2018. 

The Quality Forum is a great opportunity to learn new skills and strategies, discuss opportunities and challenges, and network with others interested in improving health care in British Columbia. To facilitate broad participation, we keep registration fees low, provide discounted student rates, and offer bursaries for patients.

Participants can also sign up for field trips, so that they can learn lessons from other industries that are applicable to health care. Plenary presentations, a debate, and a storyboard reception bring participants together to learn, to be entertained, and to be inspired. Each year adds a few surprises, too!

Who Attends the Quality Forum?

Participants are physicians, nurses, pharmacists, allied health professionals and students. They work in academic, quality improvement, administrative and senior executive roles. They are patients. In total, nearly 1000 people will attend the main two days of Quality Forum.
