The BC Quality Awards help Health Quality BC (HQBC) recognize and celebrate people and projects that have improved quality of care in BC. We would like to invite three patient partners to join our judging panel and decide the 2024 winners and runners-up!

We are celebrating the people and projects who have improved quality of care in BC. The role of the patient partners will be to read and score nominations from a selection of categories.

After scoring nominations, patient partners will join the full judging panel, made up of leaders in health care quality, HQBC Council Members, clinicians and students for a virtual meeting to decide the winners and runners up of the 2024 BC Quality Awards.

• Number of vacancies: 3
• Date and Time: Judges will have 3-4 weeks to score the nominations beginning in October 2023.
• A virtual meeting will then be scheduled for the final voting process in November 2023.
• Location: Online meetings via Zoom
• Commitment: Approx. two months

HQBC’s Quality Awards celebrate projects within five areas of care as well as four inspiring individuals, including patients, caregivers and health care professionals.

Now in their 14th Year, the awards help us recognize and raise the profile of improvements to the quality of care in BC.

The nine winners are each awarded a $2,500 sponsorship to help support and disseminate learning from their projects.
