According to organisers, the 2023 forum will also provide a stimulating and inspiring setting for healthcare professionals to meet, learn and share knowledge with the collective aim to improve the quality and safety of care for the patients and communities. 

Professionals attending the forum will be able to advance their knowledge of healthcare improvement by learning from international experts and get inspired by expert speakers from around the world and from Qatar. 

They will also experience exceptional opportunities to network with hundreds of other committed healthcare professionals from Qatar, the region and beyond; experience unique learning formats, including “field trips” to see how what you have learned is applied in real life; join healthcare leaders and practitioners to discuss ways to collaboratively improve outcomes for patients and communities relevant to the Arab world and beyond.

The participants will also discover innovative yet practical new ways to promote safety, person-centred care and improvement, learn about real and effective, evidence-based solutions to apply in the workplace and earn Department of Healthcare Professions (DHP) approved Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credit hours.
