The event will bring together researchers, educators, trainers and policy makers from around the world.

Conference Theme: Interprofessional Education

There is now significant evidence to indicate that effective interprofessional education is an innovative strategy that enables effective collaborative practice and improves healthcare systems. The 2010 WHO Framework states that “after almost 50 years of enquiry, the World Health Organization and its partners acknowledge that there is sufficient evidence to indicate that effective interprofessional education enables effective collaborative practice”. The development of strong interprofessional teams to aid collaborative working practices must be imbedded thoughtout the working career of health professionals. This continual reinforcement of interprofessional skills will allow the health workforce to deal with an increasingly changing healthcare landscape.
