Shift Happens! will zoom in on the global shift in the model of care from acute to home and community. By exploring best practices and new models of care and technology, the 41st Annual Conference will highlight ways to support this shift, and 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 theme for next year is going to look great on branded t-shirts and ball caps” laughs Daniel Fontaine, CEO for the BCCPA. “Given the major shift in demographics, our approach to care and where we focus our resources, Shift Happens! just seemed like a natural fit.”

The 2017 Annual Conference, which also celebrated BCCPA’s 40th anniversary, had a record attendance of over 500 attendees, including service providers, commercial delegates, exhibitors, and government officials from Canada and beyond.
