EN5: From Pledge to Action: the journey to spark a revolution

Thursday, 3rd May

At the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare in 2014, Dr Faisal Saeed made a pledge to ‘spark a revolution in Maldives health care’ atop the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Four years later, with support from developed health systems such as Denmark, Scotland, and Australia, he is here to share the challenges and successes on his journey from pledge to action in a bid to bring safe and quality healthcare to the people of his homeland.

After this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how change can be implemented in low resource and challenging settings

  • See examples of Kotter’s principles in use

  • Understand the need for networking and knowledge sharing amongst developed and developing health systems, as patient safety is a global issue
