Offering the latest news in health care quality and safety, the ISQua blog also features guest posts from the best and brightest in the industry.
ISQua is offering applicants who were born in, work in, or intend to return to work in Africa, Latin America or any Low and Lower- Middle-Income countries, the opportunity to apply for the 2020 Lucian Leape Fellowship. This programme supports one physician or health care leader to advance and expand their expertise in patient safety, and improve the safety of patients in their local area.
"Insights that I gained are twofold. First, patient safety is always a top priority. No small issue needs to be left unattended or ignored as it has the potential to cause a fatality. Two, there is a need for a multidisciplinary collaboration The institutional and systems thinking approaches are critical in health care. Good procedures, communication, accountability and sharing of information are critical to avoiding mistakes and medical errors."
ISQua were delighted to host Dr Gilbert Buckle and Elom Otchi who presented a fantastic live webinar with a Q&A session on Transforming & Navigating Healthcare Quality & Safety into the Future: Reflections from AfIHQSA. This session was an ISQua African Community of Practice meeting which was also made available as an open webinar.
