Northern BC Research and Quality Conference

Conference Information

The next Northern Health Quality Celebration took place October 2019.

The Objectives of the Quality Celebration were:

  • Celebrate and showcase our efforts in quality improvement,
  • Inspire one another to continue our efforts, and
  • Learn about leading practices and innovation.

The theme of the celebration is “Quality Lives Here”. This is an opportunity to showcase what individuals or teams have done to improve everyday practice and the experience of staff, physicians, patients and families in the places that they work.
