Inspiring healthcare since 1996

The first International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare took place in London in 1996 and it was actually called European Forum on Quality and Safety in Health Care. Around 300 delegates attended, driven by their ambition to provide the best possible care to patients. The fist steps towards recognising that there are opportunities for change were made.

Since becoming the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare in 2007, the event has grown even larger and more international.

Building on years of success, we launched an International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare in APAC in 2015, aiming to showcase internationally recognised keynotes and to address regional needs.

The growth of posters

Over the years, presenting a poster and showcasing one’s work at an event such as the International Forum has become not just very popular but also a tremendous opportunity to meet colleagues, discuss projects and take steps towards improving them or even adapting them so they are replicated elsewhere. With hundreds of  posters displayed at the International Forum, there are multiple opportunities to learn from the work of colleagues working across the globe and start collaborating.
