Registration Is Selling Out! Best of Both Worlds Forum: Dimensions of Quality, Indigenous Perspectives

January 26th, 2017

On March 1 First Nations Health Directors will join FNHA and provincial quality partners, clinicians and other allies to examine how Indigenous concepts of health and wellness can be reflected within FNHA, First Nations and provincial quality frameworks.

This pre-conference event will offer four streams of interactive workshops including: cultural safety and humility, quality 101, defining a First Nations quality framework and building health care allies.  The day is designed to allow ample time to network with one another and quality partners from the provincial health system.

The FNHA and the FNHDA look forward to working together to write the next chapter in health and wellness service improvements for BC First Nations.

Pre-forum events have historically sold out – as of January 22 there are only 70 seats remaining and this event is first come, first served and has a 260 seat capacity.
