The first must-see forum of 2018

Join us for Innovations in Health Care, Vancouver’s first All-Staff Forum of 2018. Developed in consultation with staff and physicians, this interactive forum will be held on Wednesday, February 28, and you’re invited to participate at VGH or via webcast.

Using technology to transform patient care

Attend this interactive forum and learn how Vancouver staff and physicians are using new and everyday technology to transform patient care in the hospital and in the community. Bring your curiosity, your ideas and your questions about how we can achieve breakthroughs in patient and client care with high-tech help. No idea or question is too big or too small — and tech proficiency is not required!
