2011 BC Quality Awards

Throughout British Columbia, health facilities and programs are improving how they care for patients. But advances in health care quality don’t happen on their own. Innovation is driven by the expertise and leadership of health care providers and administrators who are passionate about improving the health system.

Through its 3rd Annual BC Quality Awards, the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council (BCPSQC) is acknowledging and supporting those who are making positive, sustainable changes across BC’s health system. 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.
