The 2014 conference will give particular attention to exploring how appropriateness, with its various dimensions, contributes to wait times, and showcasing examples of leading practices in Canada and elsewhere. This examination will include special attention to how a focus on appropriateness in primary care can improve timely access to care across the patient’s journey.
Taming of the Queue invitational conferences provide a forum for leaders, researchers, health care providers, administrators 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 conferences also provide an opportunity to discuss challenges that remain to be addressed in Canada and internationally.
We hope you will join us for this engaging event.
