Quotes from ISQua Delegates 


“Many thanks to organizers! Very well organized conference, and the complementary social programme was just perfect!”

 “When i attended for display poster, i got more than just standing beside my poster. i could discuss with some other participant and we had shared and learnt about ideas, problems solving, in healthcare. ”

 “The time was very well used and I can state that it was worth spending this time. The networking options were good. 

 “I was so inspired by Person Centered Care Application especially #hellomynameis & #whatmatterstoyou campaign. Now I am spreading these campaign in My Hospital”

 “The external evaluation pre-conf was outstanding. Valuable research findings, and candid discussions of timely, relevant issues.” 

The app made life easy for me!”

"Highlight is the fact that more focus is on low and middle income countries who need to be at the table and present ideas with local context"

“Several highlights: - great speakers with interesting and relevant topics - meeting new attendees and reconnecting with those from previous conferences - having the conference in a city that was a bit of a culture shock (pro's and con's), but the sights were amazing - venue and content of Monday social event was outstanding. Best in the several times I've attended.”

"Great content and a pleasure to see so many delegates getting something out of sessions."

 “Very good opportunity to attend the very high quality sessions and meet the people with similar interest. This conference is an excellent input for further research and networking.”

 “The Conference is highly educational and unique in nature as it relates to patient safety and quality”

“Broader perspective than local and national perspectives - lots to learn from broader perspective. Conference has collegial/friendly atmosphere. Great to meet new and interesting people concerned about healthcare quality issues.”

"The ISQua staff are amazing, friendly, helpful and always professional. They create an atmosphere where everyone is included"
