Shift Happens! will explore best practices and new models of care, and highlight how a culture of innovation through new technologies and person/resident-centered care can preserve quality of services, access to services and equity of health outcomes throughout the continuing care sector.

“The BCCPA looks forward to hosting approximately 12 workshops that will engage and inform delegates throughout the conference on major issues related to the continuing care sector,” says Michael Kary, BCCPA Director of Policy and Research.

“We encourage those thinking of attending the conference to submit a proposal for this year’s exciting conference focusing on the many shifts or changes that are occurring in seniors care,” says Kary.

You are invited to submit an abstract of what you propose to share with conference attendees. More than one proposal may be submitted. Presenters will be allotted approximately 60 minutes of presentation time.  Presentations may take the form of a panel discussion or workshop session. Other formats may also be considered.

Please indicate what stream best represents your presentation (i.e. residential care, home care/support, workplace health & safety, etc.). Please outline how you will ensure your presentation is interactive and engaging, as well as what the learning objectives will be for conference delegates.

BCCPA and non-BCCPA members are eligible to submit a proposal. Presenters will be required to register for the conference at their own expense at the reduced speaker rate of $625 (regular $1500).

Please submit your entire abstract proposal and speaker information, including bio and headshots by no later than January 15, 2018 to Michael Kary, Director of Policy & Research, at michael@bccare.ca.
