We recognise that 2020 has proven to be a very difficult year due to COVID-19. It continues to present challenges and a very high demand on healthcare systems and workers, requiring record-speed responses and adaptability in a complex and uncertain environment.

In April 2021 the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare is returning to London to reflect on the challenges and lessons from an unprecedented 2020. We hope we will see many of you there.

Call for Speakers London 2021 now open

There has never been a more important time to share your healthcare improvement story at the International Forum, and at London 2021 your colleagues from around the world will want to hear about your successes, challenges and key learnings.

We welcome speaker submissions for presenting an innovative project, running an interactive workshop or overall inspiring a new way of thinking.


Submissions will close on Wednesday, 5 August 2020.


Comment (NPW): Low-resource settings present special challenges for quality and safety in healthcare, including a lack of availability and use of reliable healthcare information, at all levels from the home and through primary, secondary and tertiary care. HIFA is open to the possibility of collaboration, where (for example) we could run a sponsored project/thematic discussion on quality and safety in LMICs.

Best wishes, Neil
