The International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare

For over 25 years, the International Forum has been the place for healthcare professionals to connect, share learning and innovative ideas, and discuss effective approaches to quality and safety improvement.

At our International Forums, we inform and inspire healthcare leaders, practitioners and patients towards a better, safer and higher quality of care. By attending, you will have the chance to advance your learning of quality improvement methodologies, share and deliberate ideas that can improve outcomes for your patients and communities.

At the International Forum in Sydney now postponed to 24-26 July, you will hear about the key themes in healthcare in Australasia, and you will consider how perspectives from around the world can support and inspire solutions to global and regional challenges.

The quality improvement community meets in Sydney

With travel restrictions lifting, we are very excited to be going back to Australia for a long-overdue opportunity to bring together the Quality Improvement community in person.

Over three days, we will share expertise and inspiration for creating meaningful change in practices and organisations across the region. We will be hosting discussions and informative sessions delivered by the most inspirational experts in quality improvement and patient safety.



The programme in Sydney

Our programme theme this year is New horizons: Quality improvement shaping the future. We look forward to uniting healthcare professionals and consumers from across Australasia to design new ways of delivering care.

We hope you would join us so you can share your passion and your ideas with a global community like no other. After two years of connecting remotely, in Sydney, you will rebuild old connections and make new ones.
