Categories: News & Events

Hosted by the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council, which administers the Patient Voices Network, the Quality Forum is an annual conference that brings together British Columbia’s health care community to share and discuss how to improve quality across the continuum of care.

This year’s Quality Forum features more opportunities than ever before to watch sessions live online, ask speakers questions and interact with other participants through interactive chats. No registration is required – just go to when the session you want to watch is set to begin.

They’ll be broadcasting all three plenary presentations, the debate, Health Talks and several breakout sessions as they happen. Check the schedule below and mark your calendars! All times are in PT.

Health Talks & Quality Awards Ceremony | 1900 – 2100

Health Talks is an annual evening event at the Quality Forum, where eight speakers will take to the podium to share their hopes for health care using the PechaKucha 20×20 format – showing 20 photos for 20 seconds each. It’s sure to be creative, inspiring and full of new perspectives. Want to see what’s in store? Watch videos from Health Talks 2021.

It’s really hard to make changes in health care. When a PVN patient partner says, ‘This is important to us’ it keeps us grounded on why a change is needed and keeps us motivated to keep going on projects.
