Health Quality BC is inviting a patient partner to join the Quality Forum 2024 & 2025 Steering Committees and contribute to planning one of the largest health quality conferences in Canada! Each year, the Quality Forum attracts more than 1,200 participants working across the continuum of care from communities throughout BC.

Quality Forum 2024 is taking place April 23-25, 2024 in Vancouver. Monthly Zoom meetings will be held between July 2023 and May 2024, with one in-person meeting in Vancouver in September 2023. Quality Forum 2025 timelines are expected to be similar but are not yet confirmed.

HQBC will provide complimentary registration to attend Quality Forum events, as well as coordinate travel and accommodation for Steering Committee members.

There are two patient partners on the Steering Committee – one new and one returning member – as well as representatives from partner organizations across BC. When applying for this opportunity, please describe the skills and abilities you would bring, as well as your experience and comfort level when it comes to collaborating and interacting with a large group of diverse health system partners.

The bottom line is because we’re caring for patients. People who know best are those who are receiving the care so it makes logical sense that we would consult with them about their experiences. By connecting with PVN we have been able to educate our teams about the value of patient partners and how important their perspective is in our services.
