Full-Day Pre-Forum Sessions

Each year, the pre-Forum day features a number of full-day sessions for participants to choose from. These sessions are an opportunity to bring stakeholders together to dive deeper into a specific subject.

Below you’ll find information from Quality Forum 2023. Be sure to add Quality Forum 2024 to your calendar and make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter so you don’t miss out on Quality Forum 2024 updates.

Ensuring that patients are not harmed when they need health care is a foundational responsibility of the health care system. Over the last 20 years we’ve had a growing recognition of how often this unfortunately occurs, and have made significant strides in how we think about the safety of patients. Join us for this deep dive into the latest thinking on how we ensure patients are safe, how we can continuously strive to improve and what we’ve learned over the last two decades about the safety of patients. This interactive session will have opportunities to challenge your thinking, understand the complexity of ensuring safety for patients, and recognize the role we all play in making health care delivery a safer environment.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the advances in patient safety over the last 25 years and identify future trends
  • Share effective strategies and leading practices to stimulate and sustain a culture of patient safety
  • Create connections and build relationships with others committed to understanding and embedding patient safety activities in everyday work

When: 0800 – 1600

We know that education and learning can only take us so far. The next step is to meaningfully imbed the concepts of anti-racism into our actions. If you are a non-Indigenous partner and interested in allyship, we invite you to join us at the Musqueam Cultural Centre. Not only will we get to spend time in this beautiful space, together we will explore experiences of making space and upholding Indigenous self-determination. This workshop-based day will explore the milestones in your learning, what is most important to understand regarding concepts of allyship and what others who are starting their journey should know.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Explore professional allyship and how to include Indigenous voices while recognizing their own responsibility to advance decolonization.
  • Identify common areas of focus for activating the work of addressing Indigenous specific racism.
  • Examine the experience of others who have and continue to work in meaningful ways with Indigenous Partners.

In collaboration with the Joint Collaborative Committees (JCCs) | 0800 – 1630

Over the past seven years, the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council has collaborated with the JCCs, a partnership between Doctors of BC and the BC government, to highlight the diverse and varied work of the JCCs, and to recognize the work being accomplished by their partnerships with other health care colleagues.

This year, the JCC Pre-Forum theme is Collaborative Compassion: The Power of Connectedness. As physicians and health care providers demonstrate the value of collaboration through showcasing a variety of quality improvement (QI) projects, we look to harness compassion and connectedness to increase the opportunities to expand and positively influence patient care and the health care system.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from renowned keynote speakers, Dr. Susan Biali-Haas and Dr. James Makokis, and will have the opportunity to attend a variety of QI presentations in formats such as rapid fire, workshops and storyboard displays.

Funding is available to cover registration and expenses for up to 250 practicing physicians in BC to attend the Pre-Forum (June 6) and the main Forum (June 7 & 8). More details on physician funding coverage can be found here.
