The changing face of health care: The Asia-Pacific story

10 Aug 2012

A gathering of health leaders and innovators is taking place in Auckland next month – and you’re invited.

The changing face of health care: The Asia-Pacific story is just one of the many thought-provoking workshops being held at the Asia Pacific (APAC) Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care conference.

The workshop is an opportunity to find out how the values and behaviours that characterised health care in the past century are changing, and to discover what lies ahead.

Presenters include one of the world’s leading authorities on health care quality and improvement, Donald Berwick, as well as the CEO of Changi General Hospital in Singapore, Chien Earn Lee, and New Zealand’s Director General of Health, Kevin Woods.

They will discuss the challenges nations are facing and their different approaches to improving personal care and population health while containing costs.

The forum runs from 19 to 21 September and focuses on issues relevant to health care design and delivery in the Asia Pacific region. It has been organised by the Institute for Health Care Improvement (IHI) and Ko Awatea, and is sponsored by the Health Quality & Safety Commission.

More information, including a detailed programme and registration, can be found on the APAC forum website.
