We were delighted to host Dr Peter Lachman for the second episode in the ISQua Podcast series, and the very first ISQua Ask the Expert session.
The topic for this episode was: “Is safety our business? If so, what do we need to do to be successful?”
Ask the Expert Overview
The Ask the Expert series seeks to share the latest knowledge and research from global healthcare experts with the ISQua Community and open up the conversation between all those who are dedicated to improving healthcare quality and safety. ISQua Fellows have the opportunity to attend the live sessions and have their questions answered live by an international healthcare expert.
About the Fellowship Programme
The ISQua Fellowship Programme was created in order to develop a global community of learning and improvement in healthcare quality and safety. Our goal is to connect as many healthcare professionals as possible, enabling them to both share their individual experiences, and learn from the experiences of others.
We do this by fostering our community of like-minded individuals. All participants benefit from the three core ISQua values of Knowledge, Network and Voice:
- Knowledge : Learn from a wide range of international experts and start making improvements within your own personal context.
- Network : Expand your professional network, make new contacts and become a valued member of our community.
- Voice : Share your thoughts, ideas and opinions, and showcase your research with like-minded peers. Be recognised for your contribution to the community.
