#QS18

Quality & Safety Summit 2018

The 4th Annual Quality & Safety Summit will be held on October 17th & 18th at the MacEwan Conference and Event Centre in Calgary, Alberta.

As always, patient and family advisors partner with healthcare providers and professionals to bring you an exhilarating two-day event. Once again, we will be seeking Patients Included status, meaning that we are committed to incorporating the experience of patients!

This year our theme is “1 + 1 = 3”. This year we are going to create synergy to transform our health system. Together with patients we will find new ways to solve old problems, spark curiosity and build stronger networks.

Abstract Submission is Now Closed.

Thank you for submitting your ideas to the 2018 Quality & Safety Summit! You will be notified on or before June 25 whether your abstract has been accepted

We accepted abstracts into two streams:

  • Stream 1: Transformation through Innovation

    This is for you rebels out there! Are you trying something completely new or different in your area; going boldly where no person has gone before? This stream is for you - we want to hear your radical ideas and emerging ways of how to improve care. You might only have limited results that your idea is on the right track, but we want to hear how you are breaking new ground, how you made it happen and what you believe is possible for the future! The summit is an opportunity to seek input, inspire collaboration, and motivate action at an early stage in your project.

    The definition of innovation that we are hoping to showcase is: New ideas that oppose and contradict our accepted ways of delivering health care services.
     
  • Stream 2: Successful Quality Improvement Projects

    If you have implemented a successful quality improvement project and want to show it off, this is the category for you! We want to hear about your evidence-based improvement projects for delivering healthcare services and advancing a culture of patient and family centered care. Your journey doesn’t necessarily need to be complete – just show us what you’ve done so far and what could be possible in the future.

Check out the recorded ‘Abstract Writing 101’ session from April 3!  

60 posters will be displayed and up to 12 oral presentations – stay tuned!
