The fifth annual Middle East Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare (ME Forum 2017) will start with a range of pre-conference sessions this Friday, 5 May at the Qatar National Convention Center.

Organized by HMC in collaboration with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, the ME Forum features five plenary speakers and highly specialized presenters from around the world. It offers delegates the opportunity to earn up to 14.5 Continuing Professional Development credit hours. Thousands of doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, hospital administration and medical students are gearing up to take part in scores of interactive workshops and lectures that will be led by a unique mix of high-profile international experts.

To mark the event, the conference organizers have launched a dedicated app which can be downloaded by anyone interested in checking out the more than 50 workshops and lecture sessions focused on quality improvement learning. The two and a half day event will feature the highly anticipated quality improvement poster exhibition and competition, with the winners’ award ceremony taking place on the final day. The Knowledge Zone is another key attraction that is a regular feature at this event; it is an exhibition area featuring partner exhibition booths, interactive and entertaining learning activities and the highly popular quality improvement poster exhibition.
