This workshop explores how data can be used to drive improvements we wish to see - setting up measurement systems that work, analyzing data to uncover new insights and monitoring improvements over time. Not a technical person? Don't worry, the workshop isn't about crunching numbers in Excel or using statistical software. Instead, we take a practical, hands-on approach to exploring how data can be used to answer questions, understand problems and drive meaningful change.

If you have a strong interest in this work but have not yet completed a PVN orientation and Volunteer Agreement, are unsure if your experience is a good fit or feel another format of engagement would work better with your availability, please contact Cassy Mitchell.

The BCPSQC Learning & Capability Development team works to build capability and capacity for improvement throughout a variety of avenues such as Quality Academy, Quality Café and in-person workshops ( Quality improvement requires knowledgeable and skilled people at all levels of BC's health system. Change is more likely to be sustained if the people leading it are properly equipped to do so. Therefore, the BCPSQC has committed to ensure that PVN members are included in learning opportunities to ensure that they feel comfortable and informed when working on quality improvement initiatives throughout the system.

The question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
