International Congress of Health Workforce Education & Research

27th to 29th June 2017, Porto, Portugal.

Hosted in collaboration with both the University of Porto and Ordem dos Medicos, the International Network for Health Workforce Education (INHWE) holds its congress once a year and it is the prime meeting place for international health workforce educators, researchers and policy makers.

The INHWE International Congress is held once a year and is specifically designed to meet the needs of all health workforce educators while also facilitating a multidisciplinary discourse by bringing together educators, policy makers, researchers and experts from across the globe. The event creates the perfect opportunity for active networking and knowledge sharing while also featuring a comprehensive program offering numerous presentations, technical sessions and workshops showcasing the latest innovations in health education.

During a time of great change for global healthcare systems the future education of healthcare professionals is key to ensuring long term sustainability for populations. International institutions have called for policies that allow the education of flexible health professionals capable of dealing with the ever-changing healthcare environment.  A multi-stakeholder and inter-professional approach to tackling this issue is paramount to ensuring this takes place. Educators must ensure that they employ the most effective teaching methods, researchers must identify the right skill combinations for future professionals, and policy makers must make effective changes to national and international planning and legislation.
