About the International Improvement Science and Research Symposium

The International Improvement Science and Research Symposium, part of the three-day International Forum programme, provides a unique platform for researchers and healthcare stakeholders to unite in the advancement of improvement science in healthcare. The full-day meeting offers an opportunity to link researchers with decision makers, and others engaged with quality improvement initiatives. Its aims are to:

  • Contribute to advancements in improving health and healthcare
  • Bring researchers from diverse backgrounds together to share learning with each other and with improvement practitioners and patients
  • Provide an international platform to showcase cutting edge improvement science research
  • Debate and advance the thinking on issues of key importance to the improvement science community
    Support improvement science researchers at all stages of their career


Improvement science and research is an emerging field that draws on a range of academic, theoretical and methodological perspectives to advance the understanding and practice of improvement in healthcare.

We hope that the event will inspire and galvanise researchers and practitioners with a renewed sense of community and direction around which to focus their endeavours.
