Last year, our pre-Forum deep dive session featured a debate. The audience loved it.

So this year we’re bringing a debate to the main event. The motion to be put forward:

Clinical autonomy is the enemy of improvement.

Sound fun?

Wait until you see the teams.


Health care radicals challenge the status quo when they see there could be a better way; they aim to change existing thinking and practice and improve care for patients, families and people who use their services.

This full-day, pre-Forum deep dive session, led by Helen Bevan, will provide people with powerful ideas, tools and connections to survive and thrive as change agents.

Quality Forum 2015’s two main days of programming will feature 56 breakout sessions, including six workshops. The event will host over 700 participants.

The event’s sessions will be led by over 150 speakers! They’ll be delivered through a blend of rapid fire and hour-long presentations.

Are you a student? If so, you’re eligible for a discounted registration rate.

And make sure you stay for Thursday night’s Storyboard Reception. It’s a fantastic opportunity to connect with over 100 storyboard presenters – while enjoying complimentary (and delicious) hors d’oeuvres. It’s also when the storyboards will be reviewed by a panel of judges.

Health Talks: Bold Ideas. Stories that Inspire. is back!

Once again, this popular event will take place on Wednesday evening, before the Quality Forum begins.
