International Society for Quality in Health Care

The International Society for Quality in Health Care is a society at the forefront of Inspiring, Promoting and Supporting Continuous Improvement in the Quality and Safety of Healthcare Worldwide.

ISQua is a global organisation whose origins date back to 1984 when it created a network for clinicians, managers, policy makers, academics and others to share knowledge easily and promote Quality and Safety of Healthcare Globally. The ISQua Network develops partnerships which improve the delivery of health care for patients, their families and the organisations administering that care. One of ISQua’s key partners is the World Health Organisation (WHO) who they assist with technical and policy advice as well as knowledge sharing.

Educating is also a large part of ISQua, they offer a unique Fellowship Programme, made up of learning activities, networking opportunities, skills development and education, through the world’s largest network of quality in health care professionals.

ISQua is probably best known for its International Accreditation Programme. They are responsible for assessing the standards of organisations who set the benchmarks in healthcare safety and quality worldwide. ISQua is the only organisation who “accredits the accreditors”.

ISQua holds an annual International Conference, which is considered to be one of the leading International Scientific Meetings in Quality and Safety in Healthcare.
