Strengthening Engagement

ISQua has made a commitment to support a regional approach to its work, including specific activities to strengthen engagement with professionals in lower and middle income countries. The development of the African and Latin American networks reflect this commitment. These groups meet on a regular basis to exchange information and share learning on issues that are specific to their own region.


Person-Centred Care Community of Practice

The Person-Centred Care Community of Practice was established to ensure that the patient perspective and person centred care is included in all of ISQua’s deliberations. Members of this Community of Practice fulfil an advisory role by sitting on ISQua Board Committees, and also meet to debate and discuss issues and obstacles to person-centred care.


ISQua's African
Community of Practice

The ISQua African Community of Practice includes quality improvement specialists working in health and social care settings across Africa. With regular online meetings, members can exchange quality improvement strategies in health care, discuss their successes and challenges and learn how best practices can be applied to their context.


ISQua's South-East Asian
Community of Practice

This Community of Practice meets at regular intervals to discuss quality improvement initiatives and challenges from the unique perspective of the South-East Asian region. Meetings are hosted by ISQua and facilitated by ISQua Board member BK Rana of the Quality and Accreditation Institute. South-east Asia is impressively diverse in culture, history and religion which creates unique opportunities and challenges for healthcare quality improvement.
