The 3rd Annual SEHA Research Conference will be held at the Fairmont Hotel, Abu Dhabi on 14th - 15th December 2011 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The theme for this year's event is "Research and Quality: Advancing excellence in healthcare." 

Under the direction of the SEHA Research Advisory Committee, the 2011 conference will be structured to be more interactive. The scientific program will comprise keynote plenary lectures with some parallel streams, poster sessions and with structured workshops. 

“SEHA’s Annual Research Conference is an important signpost on the healthcare map of UAE, pointing the way to cutting edge studies and inspiring inquiring minds to explore paths not yet taken. I welcome you once more to this conference of healthcare experts and encourage you to contribute toward advancing excellence in healthcare” said Saif B. Al Qubaisi, SEHA Chairman. 

The 3rd Annual SEHA Research Conference will feature around 200 scientific abstract presentations by healthcare professionals within the SEHA network, on diverse topics, making this year’s schedule even more engaging. Top international healthcare experts and researchers will present their views on the latest findings, best practices and emerging trends in quality and research.  

SEHA has continuously taken steps to meet the needs of the population in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. SEHA is committed to change and ready to face increased demands for excellence in health care. Primarily the most visible of SEHA’s changes are its reorganization into integrated service networks, its implementation of effective primary care, a heightened focus on customer service and its conversion from a hospital-based, specialty-focused system to one centered on “circle of excellence” based delivery of care. Many other changes are being implemented and still others are in progress. Process and practices are being re-examined through quality research  to see if it is still appropriate in today's rapidly changing health care environment and whether it will continue to be appropriate in tomorrow's world. 

 It has been SEHA’s mission to support and advance cutting-edge thinking in healthcare so that it continues to provide patients with the best-in-class treatments and facilities. In line with this objective, SEHA has successfully organized the Annual Research Conference to build strong links with the research community, and promote excellence across all fields within the healthcare sector. 

Background Information

SEHA HealthSystem

SEHA is the corporate marketing name of Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, an independent public joint stock company that owns and operates all public hospitals and clinics across the emirate. ‘SEHA’ is a phonetic rendering of the Arabic word for health.

The company was established by Emiri Decree No 10 of 2007 and is a leading participant in the reform of Abu Dhabi’s healthcare sector. The reform seeks to upgrade and improve healthcare delivery to the public at a level comparable to the finest healthcare systems in the world. The program began by separating management and regulation – SEHA assumed responsibility for public healthcare centers and hospitals, while Health Authority-Abu Dhabi (HA-AD) was established to regulate the public and private sectors. The two organizations replaced the General Authority for Health Services (GAHS), previously responsible for both roles.
