Taming of the Queue 2015

Dear Colleagues,

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming Taming of the Queue 2015 conference, to be held April 16-17, 2015 in Ottawa, at the Fairmont Château Laurier Hotel.

The 2015 conference will build on the successful previous conference theme of appropriateness by focusing on strategies to improve timely access to appropriate care for complex care patients in an ageing society. This examination will include highlighting successes and challenges experienced by Canadian and international health system stakeholders to manage patients with complex care needs including multi-morbidities.

Taming of the Queue invitational conferences provide a forum for leaders, researchers, health care providers, administrators, students and patient groups to come together to discuss and learn about key issues on improving timely access to quality health services. The conferences have contributed to enhancing knowledge and facilitating the exchange of best practices.

The Taming of the Queue Conference Steering Committee extends an invitation to health care providers, students, researchers and others interested in improving timely access to care to present a poster at the 2015 Conference in Ottawa on Thursday April 16th, 2015. Additional information related to the poster exhibit will follow.

Plans are also underway for a pre-conference wait-time workshop with detailed information to follow.

For further information please contact Brenda Trepanier at 613 731-8610 extension 2251 or toll free 800 663-7336.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in April!

About Taming of the Queue

Since 2004, the annual Taming of the Queue (TQ) conference has brought together a community of interest from across Canada to discuss access and wait time issues. Representing a wide range of perspectives, conference participants assess progress being made on wait-time measurement and management. Sponsored by several national health stakeholders, these events have enhanced knowledge about the issue, while exchanging best practices and helping to shape the public policy agenda.
