Highlights from Paris 2014

Inspiration and change are at the core of the International Forum. Over 3,000 attendees from 78 countries joined us in Paris to exchange experiences and ideas, and to build alliances and networks that would help them improve quality and safety for their patients and communities.

We were again reminded of the power of the global healthcare community to inspire new and experienced professionals alike to be healthcare leaders and to create a real and lasting change in team culture and organisational practice.

The Forum continues to empower and encourage all participants to be actively involved in shaping the future of healthcare. In Paris we offered our delegates a varied programme, which included full day courses, experience days, keynotes and cutting edge sessions. We created numerous networking opportunities and saw people working to tackle challenges they are facing together. We collected your pledges and gave voice to teams and individuals who showcased the improvement work they have been doing as poster presentations.
