Strengthening Engagement

ISQua has made a commitment to support a regional approach to its work, including specific activities to strengthen engagement with professionals in lower and middle income countries. The development of the African and Latin American networks reflect this commitment. These groups meet on a regular basis to exchange information and share learning on issues that are specific to their own region.


Person-Centred Care Community of Practice

The Person Centred Care Community of Practice has grown out of the Advisory Forum and Advisory Committee on Partnerships with Patients. The Community brings together patient representatives, advocates and practitioners with an interest in person centred care and to advise the ISQua Board on relevant matters from the patient's perspective.

ISQua has placed the patient's voice at the centre of its strategy for the coming years and is committed to the development of patient led research and publication.

Anyone who is interested in becoming part of this Community is asked to contact Caitriona Curran ( for more information.
