The 10th All Together Better Health conference which was set to be hosted by Qatar University in Qatar, on October 2020 has been postponed due to the current coronavirus pandemic.
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.
All Together Better Health is the leading global interprofessional education and collaborative practice conference (IPECP), which is held biennial under the direction of Interprofessional. Global. Previously hosted in Japan, Australia, Sweden, United Kingdom, Canada, America and New Zealand, this biennial conference aims to inspire and provide opportunities to share knowledge, compare perspectives, exchange experiences and transform current understandings of IPECP.The conference is open for all healthcare practitioners, educators, researchers, students, academics, administrators, policy makers, service users and patients from healthcare, policy, education and industry settings from around the globe.
The 10th anniversary conference theme is Cultivating a Collaborative Culture: Sharing Pearls of Wisdom under the following subthemes: ADVOCATING for people-centered care, health and wellbeing; EMBRACING diversity of stakeholders; INFORMING regional and global IPECP policies and standards; PROMOTING safety in and beyond health and social care settings and SHARING models of best practice in IPECP.
Participants who have submitted their abstracts will have a decision communicated to them by 15 May 2020. Furthermore, a new cycle for submissions will be announced in September 2020.
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”.
