The International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare

The International Forum in the Asia Pacific Region showcases internationally recognised keynotes and addresses regional needs, bringing the best of international learning to the region.

The event aims to bring together healthcare professionals who share a concern and a passion for improving quality and safety in healthcare, to provide the opportunity for healthcare professionals to publish their work as a poster or to be a speaker, to share and learn best practices, meet peers and build international connections.

We look forward to meeting in June 2021 to connect improvers in the Asia Pacific region and beyond, share examples of innovation in times of adversity, and leave inspired to move forward stronger and more connected than ever before.

Options to attend the International Forum Sydney 2021

While we are hopeful that this International Forum will be able to take place as a face to face conference, we are mindful of the continuing challenges posed by COVID-19, and as such we will be providing the opportunity to attend virtually in addition to the option of attending in person.

2020 has proven to be a very difficult year due to COVID-19 and we, alongside many others, had to adapt to the new normal brought in by the pandemic so that we continue to offer you the opportunities, learning and experiences that our delegates expect from us.

We will keep you updated as we finalise our plans over the next couple of months.

In the meantime, registration for face to face attendance is open and Early Bird rates remain available.

Early Bird registration is available until 14 April 2021

Highlights from Taipei 2019

Our fifth International Forum in the Asia Pacific region brought together over 1,300 delegates from over 35 countries, who shared their successes, goals and ambitions in improving healthcare practices and patient outcomes. 

We had six exciting visits to exceptional organisations across Taipei and discovered how they deliver outstanding care first-hand. We also had inspiring addresses from the Vice President of Republic of China (Taiwan) and from healthcare and industry leaders from around the world.
