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 safety. In May 2018 we travel to Amsterdam, The Netherlands (Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre).

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.

Amsterdam 2018 Programme

In May 2018 the International Forum returns to Amsterdam, Netherlands, to provide 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.

In Amsterdam our focus will be on how we can overcome a tide of challenges, restrictions and bureaucracy that prevent us being able to make meaningful change and discover how we can reclaim the quality in healthcare by making the best use of available resources, promoting innovation and working together to provide exceptional patient care.
