Submit a speaker proposal for Amsterdam 2018

The Call for Speakers initiative gives you, as an individual or an organisation, the opportunity to send us your proposals to speak at the International Forum.

The next event takes place in Amsterdam on 2-4 May 2018 and we want to hear your ideas for good sessions that capture the current challenges and solutions in quality improvement and patient safety.

We have 5 topics you can submit your proposals to:

In partnership with patients

We also want to create a programme that is truly co-designed with patients.
