Membership & Fellowship Scholarship

ISQua is offering scholarships to individuals who were both born in, and currently working in, low and lower-middle income countries (as classified by the World Bank) whose work and region can benefit from their participation in ISQua's Membership and ISQua's Fellowship Programme.

 

Priority will be given to healthcare professionals and healthcare academics who are in the early phase of their careers and whose organisations are considered least able to afford such an opportunity.

 

The call for applications is now closed.

Patient Inclusion Scholarship

ISQua’s annual conferences bring together key thought leaders and experts in healthcare quality and safety.

It is our aim to bring together delegates and speakers from across the world to learn from each other, and to test ideas, research findings and insights. It is our hope that attendees return to their homes to apply new knowledge and skills to the benefit of patients, who are the reason we all do what we do.

ISQua is committed to incorporating the experience of patients, who are experts in living with their condition, within our conference, while ensuring they are neither excluded nor exploited.

To facilitate this ISQua has provided six patients/patient advocates/caregivers with free registration (Pre- & Main) to ISQua's 36th International Conference in Cape Town, South Africa from 20th - 23rd October 2019 and a stipend to cover travel and/or accommodation costs.

 

The call for applications is now closed.

Lucian Leape Patient Safety Fellowship

The Lucian Leape Patient Safety Fellowship Award was established in 2018 and announced at ISQua's 35th International Conference in Kuala Lumpur. The objective is to fund physicians and health care leaders in developing countries, to advance and expand their expertise in patient safety, with the resultant improvement of safety of patients in their local area.

 

Dr David Bates, on presenting the donation to ISQua President, Wendy Nicklin, on behalf of Lucian Leape, said that "Lucian recognised that most of the harm that occurs, happens in developing and transitional countries and that there is a tremendous need to build capacity in these areas. From speaking fees and consulting, Lucian established a private foundation to support safety-related work. He has decided to close the foundation and is donating the remaining funds to establish the Lucian Leape Patient Safety Fellowship. This will be a one-year award that will support a fellow from a developing or transitional country who will complete the fellowship within their own country and will be mentored by a representative from ISQua."

 

Applications for the 2019 Fellowship are no longer being accepted.
