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 March 2019 we travel to Glasgow, Scotland (SEC 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.

Present a Poster at Glasgow 2019

With Call for Posters we give individuals and teams the opportunity to share their ideas and their work in improving the quality of healthcare. The poster displays are the perfect opportunity to meet and learn from your colleagues from around the world. Why not share your achievements and contribute to improving healthcare worldwide?

Displaying a poster gives you the opportunity to:
Influence outcomes on a global scale
Start conversations and build networks for future collaborations
Demonstrate ideas that can be adapted by others
Deliver a short presentation about your project on the Poster Stage

Call for Speakers open for the International Improvement Science and Research Symposium

We are looking for interactive and dynamic speakers to share their advanced thinking on issues of key importance to the improvement science community.

  • Showcase your achievements in improvement science to research teams from around the world
  • Enhance the visibility of your research
  • Build your profile in improvement science by speaking to over 100 colleagues from around the world
  • Make valuable connections among the research community and with improvement practitioners and patients

Deadline for submissions: 6 November 2018

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.
