The best care is delivered by health systems that listen to and act on patients’ voices. That’s why it’s vital for people with lived experience and communities to participate in research and help put this evidence into practice.


Putting Patients First (PPF) is an annual conference that fosters collaboration and learning about patient experiences in the health system. Join us on October 24 in Vancouver, BC, to help build a provincial care system with patients and families at the centre. There is no cost to attend.


More information about virtual attendance options, speakers and program will be updated on an ongoing basis.
