The International Forum

The International Forum is a bi-annual event that has established itself as one of the most important conferences for healthcare professionals committed to improving patient care and safety. The recent International Forum in Kuala Lumpur (August 2017) connected 1,000 healthcare practitioners and leaders from over 35 countries.
