I am speaking to all of you from the front line here in Italy, mainly in Florence Tuscany. As you all may know, I am a surgeon and emergency physician and, since 2002, the Clinical Risk Manager for the Florence Healthcare Trust. When the COVID-19 outbreak occurred I felt the necessity to go back to front line and help my collegues, nurses and intensivits, and other specialties to treat the enormous amount of COVD-19 positive symptomatic patients in very severe conditions needing invasive ventilation and/or supported by NIV or CPAP procedures.
During this unprecedented time ISQua remains here for you and continues to share our work and help improve your knowledge and expertise in whatever way we can. To assist you with the latest KNOWLEDGE, we have developed a dedicated COVID-19 Resource Page with information and links.

I first heard of ISQua in 1995 in the framework of its 12th International Conference, when I attended a meeting organized by PAHO and WHO in Saint John's, Newfoundland (Canada), on “Applicability of different Quality Assurance methodologies in developing countries”.
