Hamad Medical Corp (HMC) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) have announced the 6th Middle East Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare from March 23-25, 2018, with nearly 3,000 participants.
“This forum is now a platform in Qatar and the region for knowledge exchange on a wide variety of topics for all healthcare professionals,” said Dr Ron Wyatt, chief quality officer of HMC and Middle East Forum chair.
“From the science of improvement topics for those with advanced quality improvement knowledge to introductory sessions for individuals who are starting on their improvement journey, we have something for anyone interested in making a real difference to patient care,” he explained.
Delegates will be able to exchange real-world learnings, highlight successes and challenge themselves to learn about important topics designed to provide practical and evidence-based learning that will help develop their healthcare knowledge as well as patient care.
Dr Abdullatif al-Khal, deputy chief medical officer at HMC and Middle East Forum co-chair noted, “It is an amazing opportunity for such a large group of healthcare professionals to convene over three days, share knowledge and then take back to their organisations evidence-based solutions that can help tackle some of the biggest challenges facing healthcare systems today.”
This year’s conference theme is “Building a Culture of Safety” and centres on facilitating a multi-disciplinary approach to delivering and improving healthcare.
The 2018 programme will see the alignment of sessions according to key topics such as Patient experience; Joy at work; Improvement science; Patient safety and Leadership.
The programme will feature leading international healthcare experts with a proven track record in quality improvement.
