On behalf of the Board, Professor Jeffrey Braithwaite, President of the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) and ISQua External Evaluation Association (ISQua EEA) is delighted to announce Dr Carsten Engel as the next Chief Executive Officer of the Society, taking up the position on 1 May 2021.
The International Society for Quality in Health Care lost its first CEO and one of its most ardent supporters when Lee Tregloan passed away in Melbourne, Australia on 7th July 2020. Lee was awarded ISQua Life Membership at ISQua's Copenhagen conference in 2008, in recognition of her thirteen years of committed service as our first CEO from May 1995 to April 2008.
The last month has been pretty busy for me as the ISQua conference took place in Cape Town. This affords me the opportunity to reflect on the key lessons that came out of the conference that may apply to the Irish Healthcare system. There is more than enough for more than one article so I probably will use the concepts over a few, writes Dr. Pater Lachman.
