ISQua Podcast Series - Episode 3 - Ask the Expert with Dr Paul Batalden Featured


We were delighted to host Dr Paul Batalden for the third episode in the ISQua Podcast series, and the second ISQua Ask the Expert session.


The topic for this episode was: “Co-production of healthcare service: assumptions and invitations”


Ask the Expert Overview 

The Ask the Expert series seeks to share the latest knowledge and research from global healthcare experts with the ISQua Community and open up the conversation between all those who are dedicated to improving healthcare quality and safety.


About the Fellowship Programme

The ISQua Fellowship Programme was created in order to develop a global community of learning and improvement in healthcare quality and safety. Our goal is to connect as many healthcare professionals as possible, enabling them to both share their individual experiences, and learn from the experiences of others.

We do this by fostering our community of like-minded individuals. All participants benefit from the three core ISQua values of Knowledge, Network and Voice:


  1. Knowledge : Learn from a wide range of international experts and start making improvements within your own personal context.
  2. Network : Expand your professional network, make new contacts and become a valued member of our community.
  3. Voice : Share your thoughts, ideas and opinions, and showcase your research with like-minded peers. Be recognised for your contribution to the community.
