The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council hosted Quality Forum 2019 from February 26-28 in Vancouver. The event was a resounding success, filled with great learning opportunities, inspiring speakers and many chances to meet new people and make connections.
This year, we sponsored 20 patient partners to attend the Forum. This was part of the Forum’s commitment to holding a Patients Included conference. PVN patient partners contributed many insights and experiences to discussions, adding a valuable voice to many topics. Patient partners were invited to meet each other over breakfast during Forum.
Many patient engagement sessions were livestreamed on the Council website. If you missed any of the sessions, you can watch them online and find copies of the presentation files! Check out the links:
