May 31 β€“ June 2 | Hyatt Regency Vancouver

The wait is over! Register now to attend Quality Forum 2022, hosted by the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council, and take part in three days of learning and sharing about improving quality of care.

As in previous years, Quality Forum 2022 has been self-assessed as Patients Included, which means that it met five clauses that ensure patient experiences will be incorporated. You can read more about all the ways patient partners are engaged in the Quality Forum.

There will be many ways to participate virtually and join the online conversation is you're unable to attend in person. You can follow and use the hashtag #QF22 on social media and watch popular events on BCPSQC.ca, where content will be livestreamed for free. More information on virtual participation will be coming soon! In the meantime, check out our innovative program and read about the sessions taking place at this year's event.

Our Commitment for Partnering Together

It’s important that engagement opportunities are meaningful for both health care and patient partners. To support this, check out our new Health Care Partner Commitments which was created with input from health care and patient partners who participate through PVN.

An Evolution of Evaluation For Our Network

Last summer, we kicked off a deep dive into what and how we monitor and evaluate when it comes to Patient Voices Network activity. Through a detailed evaluation framework, we mapped out a few new measurement tactics, retired some old ones and refreshed a few oldies but goodies!

Take the Next Step With Our
Patient Engagement Learning Series

Our Patient Engagement Learning Series is a one-stop shop to develop your skills for authentic patient engagement and bring health care and patient partners together to strengthen their work.

The first session focused on the most important things to consider when starting out as a health care – patient partner team. The second session was all about cultural safety in patient engagement and how to use these principles to engage with Indigenous patient partners.
