Celebrating People & Projects that Made Health Care Better!

Our Quality Awards celebrate projects within the five areas of care as well as four inspiring individuals, including patients, caregivers and health care professionals.

Now in their 12th Year, the awards help us recognize and raise the profile of improvements to the quality of care in BC.

The categories for this year’s awards have evolved to align with the updated BC Health Quality Matrix which we published earlier this year. The updates establish a more inclusive vision of health care quality that combines health and wellness and honours a person’s individual needs.

The nine winners are each awarded a $2,500 sponsorship. In previous years, they have also been celebrated and invited to share their work at the Quality Forum. Our celebrations will look a little different in 2021 and we’ll keep you posted as our plans take shape.

What Do the Winners Receive?

Winners are awarded a $2,500 sponsorship to help support and disseminate learning from their projects or to support ongoing learning and development. Previously, they were presented plaques in a ceremony at the Health Talks and invited to present at our Quality Forum.

With uncertainty around the safety of large-scale events at this time, we’ve decided not to host the Quality Forum 2021 as an in-person event. However, we’re still committed to bringing our community together, and how we do that is going to look different in 2021. Subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates as these plans develop.
