20/20: A Vision for Seniors

May 24, 2020 - May 26, 2020

Do you have 20/20 VISION? What is your vision for the future seniors care and living in BC?

The BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) Conference entitled 20/20: A Vision for Seniors will focus on improving seniors living and care, including best or promising practices being employed internationally that could also be implemented here in BC.  While taking a retrospective view over the past twenty years – including positive and negative changes, the Conference will discuss what seniors care / living should look like twenty years from now. Along with looking at new innovative solutions or models, the Conference will also discuss how we can work together collaboratively to meet these various challenges including a rapidly aging seniors population with increasing expectations.

The BCCPA Conference will be held May 24-26, 2020 at the Fairmont Chateau in Whistler, British Columbia. Our 2019 conference was a great success with over 500 attendees including key health care experts such as Dr. Roger Wong (Executive Associate Dean, Education, UBC), Jo-Ann Tait (Corporate Director, Seniors Care and Palliative Services, Providence Health Care) and Sienna Caspar (Assistant Professor, University of Lethbridge).

The 2020 BCCPA conference, focusing on the future vision for seniors care and living, will be a must attend event for the continuing care sector and its stakeholders.

We invite you to submit an abstract of what you propose to share with conference attendees focusing on providing positive solutions including a future vision for seniors care and living. Presentations are allotted approximately 50 to 60 minutes of presentation time. You may submit more than one proposal and presentations may take the form of a panel discussion or workshop session. Other formats may also be considered. All proposals will be adjudicated by the BCCPA Events and Recognition Committee (ERC).

We are looking for presentations or workshops in the areas of Long Term Care, Assisted Living, Independent Living, Home Health, and Faith-based Care; as well as Workplace Health & Safety. Please outline how you will ensure that your presentation is interactive and engaging, as well as what the learning objectives will be for conference delegates by using the Presentation Proposal found below.

If an abstract proposal is accepted, individuals agree to register for the Conference. Conference speakers will be eligible for the discounted Speaker rate of $650. 

The BCCPA is unable to cover expenses for those presenting at the conference, such as those expenses for delegate fees, developing handouts, travel, or accommodation.

All proposals must be submitted by January 10th, 2020. No late submissions will be accepted.
