Are you curious about how data can be used to drive improvements? Come join us to learn about measurement and the effective use of data as cornerstones of improvement efforts from incremental changes to radical transformations.

Open to: Patient partners in the Interior region

Lead Organization or Department

BC Patient Safety & Quality Council (BCPSQC)


This workshop explores how data can be used to drive the 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.

The BCPSQC will cover travel expenses for patient partners in the Interior region to attend the workshop. Pre-approval is required for all expenses.


The BCPSQC Learning & Strategic Initiatives team works to build capability and capacity for improvement through a variety of avenues:  Quality Academy; Board & Executive Learning Series; Quality Forum; online learning opportunities that are open to anyone and free to join, like 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.
