A Quality Debate: Do We Need Discipline or Innovation to Achieve Improvement?
At Quips, Quandaries And Comebacks: A Quality Debate, four great speakers debated an important – and contentious – motion related to improving the quality of care in BC’s health system:
Be it resolved that… we need disciplined execution of existing improvements more than innovative approaches to delivering care to achieve the transformation of the health care system.
