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 Amsterdam in May 2018 connected over 3,200 healthcare leaders and practitioners from over 60 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.

Highlights from Amsterdam 2018

In Amsterdam we focused on how to embrace fresh ideas, accelerate progress, build human global networks and recognise individual accomplishments. Our popular experience days have given our delegates the opportunity to visit institutions across the Netherlands. Here they learnt more about the healthcare system, got inspired by new and innovative projects and learnt how to apply what they have learned to make real change in their own organisation. We look forward to seeing you in Glasgow next March for Quality 2019.
