Health Quality Transformation is Canada’s premier conference on health quality. Hosted annually, the 2015 summit is already shaping up to be the biggest year yet, with 17 unique breakout sessions and over sixty thought leaders and health system innovators. HQT2015 will be held on October 14, 2015, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre – South Building.
Based on feedback received last year, and in order to provide delegates with as much innovative and applicable content as possible, this year’s event will feature:
- Five lunchtime learning sessions and discussion groups
- Five interactive workshops, where you can get tips and tools and explore ideas for improvement with quality improvement specialists and your peers
- All-day access to the exhibit floor, so you can explore the dynamic poster presentations, information exhibit booths and network with colleagues.
This year HQT will increase the amount of content in our program created both by and for patients, caregivers and the public. In collaboration with the Beryl Institute, HQO presents the Patient and Family Advisors: Coming Together to Transform the Health System. These unique sessions and speakers focus on patient-centred care and patient engagement.
By involving patients and their experiences as an essential aspect of Health Quality Transformation 2015 and ensuring their perspectives are accessible throughout the days program, we are proud to represent the ideals of Patients Included status at our event.
