Registration for Quality Forum 2021 Coming Soon!

Now in our 10th year of hosting the Quality Forum, we’re doing things a little different. Quality Forum 2021 will be entirely virtual with plenary presentations and breakout sessions delivered virtually and accessible wherever you are – we’re bringing the Forum to you!

We’re excited to leverage technology in a way we haven’t before, and you can expect the same level of dynamic, engaging and high-quality content that the Forum is known for. We’ll cover a variety of topics related to improving quality across the continuum of care, including those that have emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic.

While general information about the Quality Forum will remain here on our website, more details and programming will be available on our Quality Forum event page on PheedLoop.

Health Talks

Health Talks is our annual evening event and will take place Thursday, February 25. Like the rest of the Quality Forum, Health Talks will be entirely virtual. It’s a perfect activity for anyone seeking inspiration, motivation and passion in health care.

Using a PechaKucha 20×20 format, six engaging speakers will answer our question: What are your hopes for health care? Included in the line up of speakers will be the winner of our Health Talks Student Contest. Stay tuned for that announcement!

About The Quality Forum

The Quality Forum unites more than a thousand people working in British Columbia’s health care system to share and discuss how to improve health care quality. The conference provides 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. Participants work in academic, quality improvement, administrative and include senior executive roles, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, allied health professionals, patients and students.

Plenary Speakers

Our opening plenary speaker will be announced soon!

We’re excited to announce yet another plenary speaker we’ve added to our amazing line up: Rwandan pediatrician and professor Agnes Binagwaho, who is the vice chancellor of the University of Global Health Equity and the former Minister of Health in Rwanda.

With a focus on delivering more equitable health services for all, Agnes will bring her unique perspectives from Rwanda and how the country has approached health care quality. We have a huge opportunity to learn from Agnes and the successes and innovations that have emerged from Rwanda’s health care system.

Some of you may recognize Helen as she’s taken the Quality Forum stage multiple times! A well-known and globally recognized leader of large-scale change in the English National Health Service (NHS), Helen has been at the forefront of its improvement initiatives that have made a difference for thousands of patients. She has a unique ability to translate large-scale change into practical action and deliver outcomes for the benefit of the health care system.

Helen is a source of energy and inspiration for change who helps to “think the unthinkable.” It’s no wonder she was named as one of the 60 most influential people in the history of the NHS! We can’t wait to see what she has in store for Quality Forum 2021!
