2013 Innovators Conference: Measuring the Impact of PFCC
September 30 - October 1, 2013
Regina, Saskatchewan

Today patient- and family-centred care (PFCC) is more than a philosophy or a new model of care; it has become a part of each initiative we launch, and everything we do, to achieve high quality and safe healthcare. Through a comprehensive list of keynote speakers and visionary thinkers, the 2013 Innovators Conference: Measuring the Impact of PFCC will look at the results behind PFCC, new initiatives guiding change in healthcare, and innovative solutions to improving patient-centred care.

How does your organization measure up? During the 2013 Innovators Conference we will look at why despite decades of discourse and focus, are we still stuck in a place where patient and families remain on the periphery of control regarding their care? Where do the intersections of patient safety, quality of work life and inter-professional collaboration sit within the patient-centred care discourse? What can we be doing better today to make a difference tomorrow for our organizations, healthcare providers, patients and their families, and the communities we serve?

 2013 Innovator Conference hosts a fantastic line up of speakers ….
  • André Picard, Health Reporter, Globe and Mail
