New date - October 27-29, 2021
We are excited to announce that the 2021 Northern BC Research and Quality Conference will be held in Prince George, BC. It is hosted in partnership between Northern Health, the University of Northern British Columbia, Physician Quality Improvement, and BC Cancer.
Due to concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic rescheduling the conference to October 27-29, 2021 is the best way to proceed. This will ensure the conference stays true to its objectives focused on facilitating networking, knowledge sharing and inspiring new ideas in a safe way for conference participants.
The objectives of the conference are to:
- Celebrate and share research, quality improvement, evaluation, and implementation of evidence in a northern and rural context
- Support the development of research, quality improvement, evaluation, and evidence-informed practice skills
- Facilitate networking and knowledge sharing
- Inspire new ideas and encourage diverse partnerships and broaden the involvement of different stakeholders invested in the health of northerners.
The conference is open to researchers, students, health authority employees, health care practitioners, patient partners, and community organizations. Stay tuned for more details to come.
