The Patient Experience Forum has been the culmination of several months of planning and is being delivered by Hamad Medical Corporation in partnership with renowned US-based healthcare consultants Planetree International.

During the two-day conference, delegates will hear from thirteen international and more than a dozen regional and local speakers, each an expert in their field, and will provide insights into creating the right culture for patient-centred care.
Plenary Sessions will be led by the following experts:
▪ Dr Abdulla Al Ansari, Acting Chief Medical Officer at HMC and Dr Shawna Pandya, physician, scientist-astronaut candidate, speaker, martial artist, and adventurer ▪ Judith John, former hospital executive and patient advocate ▪ Patrick Charmel, President/CEO of Griffin Health ▪ Nasser Al Naimi and Dr Susan Frampton, President of Planetree International
