The International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare

For 24 years, the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare has been bringing together healthcare professionals who share a concern and passion for improving quality and safety in healthcare. We aim to provide healthcare professionals with the opportunity to share their improvement experiences and to learn best practice, to connect to peers and showcase their work, to get updated on the latest in quality and safety, and to empower action that will lead to improving outcomes for patients in communities worldwide. 

The International Forum in New Delhi is a new premium event that will showcase internationally recognised keynotes and will bring the best of international learning, high quality training and education in quality improvement to the South Asia region. The conference programme will be developed in close partnership with regional strategic partners to ensure that it addresses local needs.
