About the event
This year’s Champions of Change event focuses on the impact of enthusiastic leadership and innovative solutions on health care improvements. Through a series of presentations, posters and inspiring speakers, the interactive session will showcase work supported by the JCCs, as well as related strategies and leading practices for sustainable change. Physicians and other health care providers will have the opportunity to engage in lively dialogue around successful and emerging initiatives for patient care and collaborative approaches.
Our health care system is ever evolving and changing – and so are the people who work within it. Join your physician colleagues and health care partners for this important day of sharing and learning.
About the Joint Collaborative Committees
The four committees – General Practice Services, Shared Care, Specialist Services, and the Joint Standing Committee for Rural Issues – represent a partnership of Doctors of BC and the BC government. The committees support a vast scope of diverse work, sponsoring physicians to engage with their colleagues and partners from all across the medical community. The JCCs collectively focus on improvement in patient care as a means to shift towards a collaborative culture of care.
Over the past two years, the Joint Collaborative Committees (JCCs) have partnered with BCPSQC for two events: the JCC Showcase in 2016 and Simplifying the Journey in 2017. Both events highlighted the diverse and varied work of the collaborative committees, and other health care partners, while also sharing successes and challenges to inform future quality improvement initiatives.
