DOHA: The Middle East Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare, the premier quality improvement forum for healthcare professionals in the Arab world, has announced that its sixth event will provide the largest and most comprehensive program developed to date.
The event will feature more than 50 lectures and workshop sessions delivered by local and international experts in improvement science.
The annual Forum has become a platform for healthcare improvement learning and knowledge exchange, and this year will be held from March 23 to 25 at the Qatar National Convention Center.
This year’s Forum includes sessions focused on patient experience (patient-centred care); the benefits of what is now an internationally recognized concept known as ‘joy at work’; promoting the use of improvement science to drive meaningful and far-reaching changes that will improve health and healthcare, a special focus on patient flow; learning about establishing an environment designed to help reduce harm and preventable mortality to make the healthcare continuum safer; and engaging leaders at all levels in driving results within health and healthcare.
Dr Ron Wyatt (pictured), Chairman of the ME Forum Planning Committee and Chief Quality Officer at Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), said: “This Forum has become a highly valued professional development activity for healthcare professionals in Qatar and the region. Each year we see increasingly more interesting and relevant sessions; and while we continue to have renowned international speakers, we also have a growing cadre of exceptional professionals from Qatar who are committed to promoting knowledge of improvement methodology and practice.”
Led by HMC in collaboration with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), The Middle East Forum provides doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, and science students with a unique opportunity to collaborate and learn how to ‘Build a Culture of Safety’ within their organisation.
To register online, participants can log on to the http://ihimeforum.hamad.qa website. A full program of events is listed and participants are able to select which workshop sessions and speaker presentations they would like to attend.
The forum is now in its sixth year. It continues to support Qatar’s strategic healthcare vision by reinforcing the importance of building an integrated healthcare system that improves and sustains the health of current and future generations.
