International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare

The annual IHI/BMJ International Forum supports the worldwide movement to improve healthcare and is host to healthcare innovators from around the globe.

This year’s event takes place in London, where 3000 delegates from 80 countries will meet, learn, share local knowledge and recognise accomplishments in improving quality and safety for patients and communities across the world.

Healthcare Improvement Scotland is delighted to be participating in this year’s event. We look forward to sharing our work on the international stage and learning from others involved in actively shaping the future of healthcare improvement.
