Guest posT: The Quality Forum’s Call
for Abstracts is Open
The Quality Forum is an annual event that provides opportunities to share and learn about improvements to the quality of health care. Over 950 people are expected to attend Quality Forum 2017 – here’s your chance to tell them about your work.
You can choose to deliver a rapid fire presentation and/or display a storyboard on any topic related to providing better care for patients. The deadline for submissions is September 9, 2016.
Organized by the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council, the event takes place March 1-3, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Participants represent the entire health care spectrum – from physicians, pharmacists and nurses to quality improvement professionals, executives, administrators, students and patients.
Abstracts are divided into two categories:
Seeds are promising practices and emerging ways of ‘how to improve care’ that are too young to have results. The Forum is your opportunity to seek input, inspire collaboration and motivate action at an early stage.
Your initiative is a Sprout if it is underway or complete with results, “how-to” tips and lessons that you can share with Forum participants. Your initiative does not have to be considered a success – failures provide valuable learning opportunities, too!
Visit www.QualityForum.ca for the abstract submission form, scoring and selection criteria as well as details about the rapid fire presentation and storyboard formats. You can submit as many abstracts as you like, and each one is limited to 300 words. Contact QualityForum@bcpsqc.ca or 604.668.8224 if you have any questions.
