According to organizers, “Effective collaboration between health professionals from different disciplines in multidisciplinary teams positively affects patients’ healthcare outcomes. However, preparing students for such collaborative practice can be challenging.”

They add, “An array of topics in inter-professional education (IPE) will thus be explored in this conference. The main themes include the use of innovative pedagogies and technology, development of faculty and leadership, examples of successful collaborative practice, and many more.”

As with last year’s conference which you can watch some highlights of here, regional healthcare and medical frontline providers will attend as part of a growing scientific Greater Bay Area community.
