Abstract Reviewer & Storyboard Judge, Quality Forum 2024



Commitment: Short-term

Connection method: Hybrid

Open to Provincial Region, Patient partners across BC


Each year, Health Quality BC (HQBC) receives hundreds of abstracts from teams across the province hoping to present their work at the Quality Forum. Abstracts can be submitted on any topic related to improving the health of patients, families and communities, fostering a high-quality health system or creating better environments for those who work within it.

HQBC is inviting two patient partners to work alongside other health system partners to review abstracts using established scoring criteria in a blind process to help in the selection of projects to be presented at Quality Forum 2024. The review process will take place virtually in November 2023. These two patient partners will also be tasked with judging storyboards as part of our annual Storyboard Reception during the Quality Forum (April 24 & 25, 2024) in Vancouver. We will provide complimentary registration to attend the main Forum programming, as well as coordinate travel and accommodation for Abstract Reviewers.

In your application, please explain why you are interested in reviewing abstracts and being a storyboard judge at Quality Forum 2024 as well as any related experiences and/or education in quality improvement

Recently, a PVN Patient Advisor asked healthcare partners, “What are we learning from patients, families, and others thus far during this pandemic?”. This is an excellent question and one to ask ourselves daily.
