All Together Better Health

Hosting the Biennial World Conferences for Interprofessional Education and Practice in 2016 and 2018 

The World Interprofessional Education and Practice Coordinating Committee[1]invites expressions of interest from institutions to host the 2016 and 2018 All Together Better Health Conferences (ATBH).

 

First held in London in 1997, the ATBH conferences have gathered since in Vancouver, London, Stockholm, Sydney and Kobe bringing together up to 700 delegates from around the world to promote interprofessional education towards improving global health through closer collaboration.    

 

Interested institutions should:

  • be willing to work closely with the Coordinating Committee;
  • prepared to carry the financial liability for the conference;
  • preferably have a track record in interprofessional education and collaborative practice nationally and internationally.

 

Please contact Professor Hugh Barr at barrh@wmin.ac.uk to arrange a preliminary discussion. 

 

The successful institutions for 2016 and 2108 will be announced at the end of the forthcoming ATBH Conference in Pittsburgh on 6/8 June 2014.
