IHI partnered with the British Medical Journal to bring
professionals from around the globe together at The
International Forum for Quality and Safety in Healthcare, with
some 1,500 healthcare leaders and practitioners attending
from more than 35 countries.
This year’s theme was ‘Connect, co-create, communicate’ and
hospital staff had three poster presentations accepted, which
attracted considerable attention and led to invitations from the
British Medical Journal to submit the work for publishing.
Senior consultant for Patient Safety Dr Elly Marillier said
Joondalup Health Campus was well-represented, highlighting

“This conference brings together the very best of international
learning and it speaks volumes that JHC had not one but three
posters accepted – which is a great achievement,” she said.
“This really puts us on the international stage.”
The three quality initiatives presented were on the hospital’s
successful implementation of Ramsay Health Care’s Speak
Up For Patient Safety program; work undertaken on care of
patients with pneumonia; and changes to the Hip Fracture Care
pathway, which has seen improvements in patient outcomes.
Deputy CEO Dr Amanda Ling said she was a firm believer in
being focused on a patient-centric version of what quality and
