Patient First 2016: education passes to HQIP eBulletin subscribers as part of QI Theatre link-up

Published: 18 Jul 2016

HQIP has negotiated education passes for the 2016 Patient First conference as part of its QI Theatre partnership.

Taking place at London’s Excel on 22-23 November, Patient First attracts over 3,000 senior clinicians, patient safety professionals and commissioners every year and is one of the UK’s largest patient-safety focused events.

HQIP e Bulletin subscribers can secure their pass, worth £399, by simply registering at and entering booking code HQQ5 when prompted for payment. Passes are limited and  will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. .

Pass holders will have full, unlimited access to the two-day event which includes keynote sessions across seven conference theatre. These include strategy and policy updates in the ‘Plenary Theatre’, case studies from the AHSN Network’s ‘Best Practice Theatre’, recent technological developments to support patient safety in the ‘Safety through Technology Theatre’, and a full programme geared towards infection prevention and control in two new dedicated conference theatres. A programme of social and networking events is also available.

For the first time HQIP, in partnership with NQICAN, will oversee content for the ‘Quality Improvement Theatre’ – a specialist stage, based on the conference floor, featuring ‘how to’ seminars, case studies and debates on themes such as reporting for maximum impact, effective use of technology and cross-pathway data integration. Confirmed speakers include Ben Bray, clinical fellow for UCL, and Dr Marc Farr, director of information East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust.

HQIP’s medical director Professor Danny Keenan, who will be chairing the QI Theatre, said:

“Patient First and HQIP share a clear commitment to support clinicians, commissioners, audit staff and patients in measuring and improving healthcare quality. We are therefore delighted to co-host the Quality Improvement Theatre in partnership with NQICAN. The education pass opportunity is also an excellent means of ensuring the event is openly accessible to professionals of all levels including those on the frontline of care.”
