Nominate People and Projects that Made Health Care Better!

Did your project improve how care is delivered? Do you know somebody who made an outstanding contribution to improving quality of care?

Our 2017 Quality Awards celebrate projects within the four areas of care as well as four inspiring individuals. For the first time, we’re recognizing a patient, caregiver or family member who advanced the patient voice in BC’s health care system.

Launched in 2009, the awards recognize individuals, teams and facilities that have improved the quality of care in BC. They also raise the overall profile of efforts to improve quality throughout the province.

Winners will be awarded a $2,500 sponsorship to help support or disseminate learning from their projects, and will be presented plaques in a ceremony at Health Talks on March 1, 2017.

Each winner will also receive complimentary registration for the Quality Forum on March 2 and 3, 2017. Winners of the four initiative-based awards will be invited to deliver presentations at the Quality Forum.
