The Quality Forum is our annual three-day conference. The first day hosts full-day sessions that “dive deep” into timely topics, as well as our evening Health Talks event. The following two days feature the Quality Forum’s main programming: plenary speakers, presentations and workshops on topics related to improving quality across the continuum of care.
Quality Forum 2019 will take place from Tuesday, February 26 – Thursday, February 28.
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 in British Columbia.
Participants include physicians, nurses, pharmacists, allied health professionals and students. They work in academic, quality improvement, administrative and senior executive roles. They are patients. In total, nearly 1000 people will attend the main two days of Quality Forum. To facilitate broad participation, we keep registration fees low, provide discounted student rates, and offer bursaries for patients.
Enter Our Health Talks Student Contest
The first evening of the Quality Forum kicks off with a fun event called Health Talks.
Eight speakers share their hopes for health care using the PechaKucha 20×20 presentation style, which means that they show 20 images for 20 seconds each while they’re talking. From emergency physicians to Indo-Folk singers, we’ve had a wide variety of presenters captivate our Health Talks audience.
And now we’re looking for one BC student to take the stage through our Health Talks Student Contest. The winner gets to be a Health Talks speaker and to attend the entire Forum.
