Message from the Summit Chairperson
We are delighted to welcome you the first Qatar Summit for Healthcare Risk Management (QSHRM 2019). After more than four years of continuous coordination with the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management (ASHRM), we are honored to have them collaborate with us to bring this summit to Qatar – the first time it has ever been presented in this region and outside of the US.
This summit is expected to engage healthcare practitioners, patient safety, healthcare risk management professionals from across Qatar, and the region. It is focused not only on the critical issues surrounding healthcare risk management, but also on learning about key patient safety and healthcare risk management tools and techniques to support improved patient care and outcomes.
Risk management has always been increasingly important in healthcare because human lives are on the line. By developing and improving our skills, we can ensure that the care we provide is the safest, most effective and compassionate care to all our patients. In doing so, we honor the trust our patients and their families place in us every single day.
This is an opportune time for everyone involved in patient safety and risk management to have a meeting of the minds and learn from each other’s experiences. I welcome you to this summit and look forward to your active participation.
Dr. Moza A/Latif Hassan Abdulla Al-Ishaq
Executive Director, Clinical Transformation
