The Roots of the Future - 30 years since the founding meeting of ISQua

On 29th and 30th May 2015, ten founding and early members of ISQua met again in Udine, Italy to discuss 'The Roots of the Future' and to show what they had learned about quality in healthcare since the first meeting in 1985. 

This session was organised by Andrea Gardini, President of SIQUAS, and with the support of the Regional Organisation among Municipalities and Local Health Trustees and Hospitals (Federsanità-ANCI) and Prof. Silvio Brusaferro Professor of Public Health, in the University of Udine and in the University Hospital.
