The BC Quality Awards celebrate extraordinary work in our health system. Award categories represent the four areas of care, an outstanding leader, and an Everyday Champion.
Launched in 2009, the awards program recognizes individuals, health care teams and facilities that have implemented measures, or engaged in initiatives, to improve the quality of care in BC. The awards also serve to raise the overall profile of efforts to improve quality throughout the province.
Winners are 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 February 18, 2015. Each winner will also receive complimentary registration for the Quality Forum, and winners of the four initiative-based awards will deliver presentations at the event.
