Explore the International Forum on Perioperative Safety and Quality

After the huge success of the first edition of this new one-day conference on perioperative patient safety, the second edition in Copenhagen will further explore how improvements in patient safety and quality will help to advance the health of individuals and populations. Attendees will hear about global perspectives, successful implementation of quality projects, and how to maximize learning from adverse events. You will also learn how to analyze success, how to engage stakeholders and how to manage fatigue. The ISQ brings you the latest resources to help improve perioperative outcomes for patients and communities.
