It's That Time of the Year:
Nominations Are Open for the 2018 Quality Awards!
The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council (BCPSQC), which supports PVN, has just launched the 2018 Quality Awards, its annual celebration of people and projects that made health care better in our province. And it’s the second year that the Council will celebrate a patient, caregiver or family member who advanced the patient voice in BC’s health care system.
The Leadership in Advancing the Patient Voice award recognizes a nominee who assumed a leadership role and contributed in any number of meaningful ways, including inspiring other patients and health care organizations to collaborate in pursuit of better health care.
Additional categories celebrate projects within the four areas of care, a Leader in Quality, an Everyday Champion, and a Quality Culture Trailblazer. Learn about them here.
Do you think a project that you participated in would make a great nominee? Did you work alongside someone whose contributions to improving quality of care deserve recognition? Send your nominations by June 30!
Award winners will receive a $2,500 sponsorship to support and disseminate learning from their projects or ongoing learning and development, and will be recognized with an awards ceremony at the Council’s Health Talks event in February 2018.
Last year we were thrilled to see PVN Patient Partners as the winner and the runner-up for the Leadership in Advancing the Patient Voice category, and we’re looking forward to seeing this year’s champions!
