ISQua will create Special Interest Groups from time to time in order to promote particular areas of activity and interest in healthcare safety and quality.
SIGs may represent specific areas of knowledge, learning, practice or interest in quality and/or safety in healthcare.
These groups are created to facilitate dialogue and networking for people working or interested in these areas.
Usually SIGs emerge naturally and the Board formalises their existence by making them ‘committees’of the Board. Alternatively the Board may identify a particular of healthcare safety or quality requiring support and promotion and will seek to provide this through the creation of a SIG.
ISQua’s first SIG was created in 2012. This group is the SIG in Quality of Social Care for Older Persons. (link to SIG:QSCOP)
