More about the Forum

The Asia Pacific International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare was held for the first time in Australia in 2018 in Melbourne. In that year, Safer Care Victoria were the primary strategic partner, along with the Clinical Excellence Commission, the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards and the Australian Commission on Quality and Safety in Healthcare.

The International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare, a collaboration between the British Medical Journal and the Institute for Healthcare improvement, is a biannual gathering of healthcare professionals in quality improvement and patient safety. The International Forum connects healthcare leaders and practitioners worldwide to improve outcomes for patients and communities.
