The Middle East Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare is back for 2021

To be held virtually 12 to 14 November 2021, the Middle East Forum for Quality and Safety in Healthcare is hosted by Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), in collaboration with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI).

Once again, we will bring together the top local and international experts in the fields of patient safety, improvement science, healthcare workforce wellbeing, patient care innovation and engagement.

The ME Forum 2021 will virtually connect more than 3,000 physicians, nurses, quality leaders, healthcare administrators, hospital executives, patient and family advisors and other allied health professionals.

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

This virtual yet very interactive event will take place online using a platform provided by HMC’s approved virtual conference platform provided by MasterBadge. On these pages you will find more information about sessions and speakers as well as how to register.

We look forward to welcoming you virtually in November!
