Britsh Columbia's only patient-oriented research conference.
#PPF19 will be held on November 20th, 2019 at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel.
Putting Patients First is our annual conference designed to encourage learning and collaboration between patients interested in patient-oriented research (POR), health researchers, health care providers and health system decision makers.
Find out why this conference is important to patients, researchers, decision-makers and health care providers, our conference goals, and learning objectives.
We acknowledge that our event takes place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the ʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. As guests to this beautiful land, we are thankful and consider it a privilege to do our learning here.
