Singapore, 26-28 September 2016

Engage. Energise. Evolve.

In September 2016 the International Forum traveled to Singapore. The theme for the conference was "Engage. Energise. Evolve.".

We welcomed in Singapore over 1,200 of your healthcare colleagues from 39 countries. The event featured keynote speakers from the US, UK and APAC countries and showcased the very best of international and regional thinking and practice in quality and safety in healthcare.

We look forward to welcoming you again to our future APAC events, with the next one taking place in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 24-26 August 2017.



Highlights from Singapore 2016

In Singapore this year we focused on finding inspiration and developing new skills to engage, energise and evolve in our mission to improve healthcare for communities across the world.

Over 3 dynamic days in Singapore, we discussed solutions for the challenges we are facing and learned from the rich experience of healthcare teams across the world. Some of the key issues we discussed included:

  • Incident management
  • Aging population
  • Transformation and models of healthcare
  • Technology and how it can improve patient experience
  • Measurement and data
  • Leadership for improvement
  • QI capability building
