Quality Forum

The Quality Forum is our annual conference that brings together British Columbia’s health care community to share and discuss how to improve quality across the continuum of care.

Quality Forum 2022 will take place May 31  – June 2 in Vancouver, BC.

The Quality Forum is a great opportunity to learn new skills and strategies, discuss opportunities and challenges, and network with others interested in improving health care. We welcome participants who work in academic, quality improvement, administrative and senior executive roles, as well as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, allied health professionals, patients and students.

The overall goals of the event are to:

  • Ignite action and learning to improve quality of care;
  • Create and strengthen relationships and collaboration across all areas of care;
  • Share effective strategies and leading practices to stimulate and sustain improvement; and
  • Demonstrate how every voice matters to achieve high-quality care.

Quality Forum 2022 Rescheduled to May 31 – June 2

Following much discussion with the Quality Forum’s steering committee, we’ve decided to reschedule the event to May 31 – June 2, 2022.

This decision was made to keep our participants’ safety at the forefront and in considering pressures the health care system is currently facing throughout the province. The Quality Forum will remain an in-person event, in line with guidance received from our steering committee and provincial health orders, and we’ll continue following advice from our public health leaders as it becomes available. We’re hopeful that an in-person event will help reconnect the health care community by celebrating great ideas together.

All updates will be posted here and shared through our newsletter. If you have any questions, please get in touch at QualityForum@bcpsqc.ca or via phone at 778.945.8788.

As a result of these new event dates, we’ve also delayed our timeline for accepting abstracts so that submitters have a better idea of their capacity and availability to present before they are required to confirm their participation.

We’re tremendously grateful to our community for how it has adapted, persevered and continued to provide high-quality care throughout the pandemic. We look forward to seeing you next spring!

Watch Recordings from Quality Forum 2021

We did things a little bit different for our 10th Forum: the event was entirely virtual, allowing us to leverage technology in new ways while providing the same level of dynamic, engaging and high-quality content. Recordings of the plenary presentations can be viewed below and we’ll be continually updating this page with additional resources. If you attended Quality Forum 2021, its virtual event platform on PheedLoop will remain online for six months and we’ve added all session recordings.
