We are delighted to announce an upcoming milestone event, the 2024 International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare. This prestigious gathering, jointly organised by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and the British Medical Journal, stands at the forefront of global efforts to advance health and care improvement. This forum is a catalyst of inspiration and innovation in the healthcare sector, attracting some of the world’s most brilliant minds committed to enhancing patient safety and health outcomes.
Together to Regenerate Health and Care
The London 2024 theme, Together to Regenerate Health and Care, encapsulates the shared vision of reshaping the global healthcare landscape. To forge a health and care system that resonates with and effectively serves our communities’ needs. This programme covers a variety of innovative ideas, harnessing the potential of advanced technologies and fresh perspectives to redefine health for populations in the UK, Ireland and worldwide.
Special Highlight: Aortic Dissection Patient Safety Collaboration
In a session that epitomises the spirit of the event, we are honoured to feature the recent Award-Winning Aortic Dissection Patient Safety Collaboration. This presentation, titled Combining Safety Science with a Compassionate Approach to Learn from a Recurrent Serious Incident, will be a central part of the Taking a Human Factors Approach When Learning from Serious Incidents session.
We are proud to collaborate with Austin Smithies, a leading Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Hull University Teaching Hospitals, and Catherine Fowler, our trustee, to present this critical work. Their combined expertise and insights are invaluable in our mission to enhance patient safety and care quality.
The session will be chaired by two eminent figures in healthcare quality improvement and patient safety:
Aidan Fowler: Serving as the National Director of Patient Safety in England and a Deputy Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health and Social Care, Dr Fowler’s expertise is instrumental in guiding national patient safety strategies.
Ian Leistikow: As an inspector and advisor at the Dutch Health & Youth Care Inspectorate and a professor at Erasmus University Rotterdam, Ian brings a wealth of knowledge in healthcare quality and patient safety regulation.
Join us in shaping the future of aortic healthcare.
