Quality Forum 2019 is just around the corner!

As part of the Forum’s accreditation as a Patients Included conference, the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council will be broadcasting Health Talks, the Quality Awards ceremony, breakout sessions and plenary presentations live as they happen.

This year, the Council has made it even easier to tune in to the sessions: they will be streaming on its website! We’ve made a list of the sessions and talks that you won’t want to miss:

Tuesday, February 26

  • Health Talks and Quality Awards Ceremony  – 1900 – 2100

Wednesday, February 27

Thursday, February 28

It’s very exciting to have Chris Pointon close out the Forum, as he helped start a global campaign to improve patient care through introductions with the hashtag #HelloMyNameIs. Chris and his late wife, Dr. Kate Granger, began the campaign after she had been diagnosed with cancer. In his presentation, Chris will show how his campaign is keeping her legacy alive and improving health care.

Where those of us in the room may have debated policy or wording, patient voices made sure patients were top of mind. And as a result, significant improvements were made to simplify something that was otherwise complex. Patient voices at the table bring us back to reality in terms of what we are trying to achieve.
