The ATBH X conference committee, in close collaboration with Interprofessional.Global, welcomes all practitioners, educators, researchers, students, academics, administrators, policy makers, and service users from health and social care settings from around the globe. The ATBH X conference aims to inspire and provide opportunities to share knowledge, compare perspectives, exchange experiences and transform current understandings of IPECP.
Please see the ATBH-X Abstract guidelines in this LINK. Decisions will be announced in May 2021.
All Together Better Health (ATBH) is the leading global IPECP conference, previously hosted in Japan, Australia, Sweden, United Kingdom, Canada, America and New Zealand. We are pleased to be bringing this biennial event to the Middle East for the first time! ATBH provides a collaborative forum for transnational champions to promote IPECP towards improving global health through consensus-based partnership, share ideas and address emerging health care challenges.
Considering the uncertainty of COVID-19’s outcomes and restrictions to travels imposed by governments around the globe, the conference has been rescheduled to 25th-27th October, 2021 in discussion with the Global Confederation for Interprofessional Education & Collaborative Practice (Interprofessional. Global). Conference organizers took many things into consideration regarding the postponement, with safety being the number one priority.
Dr. Egon Toft, Vice President for Medicine and Health at Qatar University said: “It is with great regret we have decided to postpone the 10th All Together Better Health Conference due to the unexpected delay COVID-19 had forced into our lives. However, despite the current challenges, we are sure ATBH conference will be a success in 2021 and represents Qatar University at its best.”
Dr Alla El-Awaisi – College of Pharmacy Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, and chairperson of the conference explained: “We were excited and ready to have this conference in 6 months with preparation underway for the last two year. Unfortunately, the current impact faced by COVID-19 cannot be estimated and the uncertainty of its outcome makes it impossible to proceed with the conference in October 2020. However and from a positive note, the current pandemic has necessitated widespread interprofessional collaboration in a way it never happened before and highlighted the vital roles of healthcare teams in combating this pandemic so the postponement of this conference will provide participants with the opportunity to share their pearls of wisdom in dealing with this pandemic.”
Dr. Johanna Dahlberg- Senior Lecturer at Linköping University- Sweden- and Chair of Interprofessional.global said: “It is unfortunate that the ATBH X conference has to be postponed. The value of meeting, learn from each other’s, to stimulate IPECP and research in this field is very much inspired by the face-to-face conferences. Interprofessional.Global will continue the work to stimulate the IPECP activities globally, while we are preparing for ATBH X in 2021 where we will have opportunity to explore the learning from the current experience of a pandemic situation”.
