The International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare

The International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare is one of the world’s largest conferences for healthcare professionals committed to improving patient care and their safety. In May 2018 the International Forum travels to Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The recent International Forum in London in April 2017 connected 3,000 healthcare leaders and practitioners from over 70 countries, providing an inspirational setting to meet, learn and share knowledge in our common mission to improve the quality and safety of care for patients and communities across the world.

Highlights from London 2017

In London we focused on how the power of collaboration can inspire all parties, including patients, families, new healthcare professionals and improvement leaders to deliver top quality, person-centred care in a sustainable framework. Themed Igniting Collective Excellence, this year’s programme also discussed preventing burnout among physicians in order to ensure patient safety, empowering both healthcare professionals and patients for achieving better outcomes and collaboration within healthcare professional teams and as part of a patient-professional partnerships.
