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.

This year’s Quality Forum will take place from February 25 – 27 at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver.

Looking for videos from Quality Forum 2019? We have full, high resolution versions of our plenaries and the debate coming soon! If you want to view the previously livestreamed versions of the plenary presentations, Health Talks and breakout sessions, they’re available here.

Submit an Abstract

Over 1,200 people will be at Quality Forum 2020! Your chance to tell them about your work during the main Forum programming (Feb 26 – 27) starts by submitting an abstract – a short description of your project or idea (300 words or fewer, to be exact). If you’d like some tips and tricks on how to write a great abstract for your QI work, check out this recorded Quality Café session!

Submit as many abstracts as you’d like to for the opportunity to deliver an oral rapid fire presentation and/or display a poster storyboard at the event.

What is the Quality Forum

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.
