Towards a High Performing Health Care System:
The Role of Canada’s Quality Councils

The Health Council of Canada is hosting a national symposium to address quality improvement in Canada, and the strategies employed by various provincial health quality and patient safety councils in the areas of performance measurement, performance reporting, and capacity building for quality improvement. The event provides opportunities for greater collaboration among national, provincial and territorial organizations dedicated to quality improvement and patient safety. The event will bring together senior leaders from governments, regional health authorities, dedicated health quality councils, and national and other health care organizations that are committed to quality improvement and patient safety.
