Quality Forum 2017: A Look Back
Quality Forum 2017 brought together more than 1,200 participants over its three days. First, a “pre-Forum day” featured two full-day sessions: we partnered with the Joint Collaborative Committees to examine how to improve patients’ primary, surgical and rural care journeys, as well as with the First Nations Health Authority to dive deep into health care quality as seen through an Indigenous lens.
The event’s main two days of programming welcomed 950 people from across the continuum of care and geographical regions of the province. Programming was guided by a steering committee that included representatives from provincial stakeholders and featured plenary speakers, oral and poster presentations, field trips, breakout sessions and interactive workshops on a wide range of topics related to providing quality care.
In evaluations after Quality Forum 2017:
- 95% of participants agreed that the Forum ignited action to improve quality of care for patients and providers
- 93% agreed that it created and strengthened connections and collaboration across all areas of care
- 87% agreed that it shared effective strategies and leading practices to stimulate and sustain improvement
