Publications Review Club

"Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours." John Locke

The ISQua Education Publications Review Club provides Participants with an opportunity to read some of the latest literature and research in Quality and Safety in Health Care and share their thoughts and ideas with their fellow Participants.

The Editor-in-Chief of the ISQua International Journal for Quality in Health Care, Yu-Chan (Jack) Li, chooses a publication of the issue every two months. These issues are published to the relevant tracks in our Fellowship Programme and Participants are encouraged to review the articles and submit their reviews for grading.
