CEO Update

We are now over half way through the year and moving closer and closer to our annual Conference in Kuala Lumpur in September.


As I am sure you know, we offer early bird rates for delegates who register before 4th July, and as members, you receive even more of a discount.


Why should you travel to Kuala Lumpur for #ISQua2018? I have 5 reasons for you:

  • Over 250 health care quality and safety leaders have been invited to speak and present at our 2018 Conference.

Connections and Networks

  • By attending ISQua 35th International Conference you will have direct access to an international community of key health care and patient safety experts. Meet up with friends or colleagues and make new acquaintances and connections.

Be in the know!

  • Looking after the 'second victim', climate change & health, inequalities in health, tackling NCDs, we cover the topics that matter most to the healthcare industry.

And then of course, there's Kuala Lumpur!
