‘Qatar makes great strides in patient care improvement since 1st edition of forum’

President and CEO of IHI Derek Feeley said that quality improvement initiatives now extend across the continuum of care, from hospital to home. “Health behaviours are associated with a multitude of health and well-being outcomes at the individual and population levels. We are pleased to have collaborated once again with HMC to provide a forum for quality improvers that helps them develop better ways to deliver patient care. This is part of a broadening mission of achieving greater health equity and improving the health of populations while rewarding value rather than volume.” Deputy Chief of Quality and Director of HMC’s Hamad Healthcare Quality Institute HHQI and Middle East Forum Co-Chair Nasser al Naimi said, “There are so many inter-dependencies that need to be managed to initiate sustainable quality improvement and with our exhibits, we wanted to give delegates the opportunity to learn, reflect, be inspired, and share knowledge with other professionals –all in an exciting and fun environment.” Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Director of Medical Education at HMC and Middle East Forum Co-Chair DrAbdullatifAlKhal said, “This is a great opportunity for all healthcare professionals to participate in an international conference of a very high calibre without having to travel far. Many attendees who have been delegates at one of our previous forums are now presenting their own work on quality and safety. Of the 126 speakers this year, 108 are from Qatar and the region, which is a testimony to the progress we have made in quality improvement understanding and application since we held our first Middle East Forum seven years ago. The programme this year has many new and innovative topics in the field of quality and safety and it provides an opportunity for participants to network with leaders in this field.” The exhibition area features over 15 exhibitors, including the Ministry of Public Health, HHQI, PHCC Qatar Armed Forces, Qatar Red Crescent, Sidra Medicine, Qatar University, and the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH). The forum concludes on March 24.
