Salam (Greetings) from Doha!

A warm welcome to the 11th International Conference on Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice (IPECP), All Together Better Health (ATBH) XI, to be held in Qatar in November 2023 bringing this biennial event to the Middle East for the first time! ATBH is the leading global IPECP conference, previously hosted in Japan, Australia, Sweden, United Kingdom, Canada, America and New Zealand. 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.

The ATBH XI 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 XI conference aims to inspire and provide opportunities to share knowledge, compare perspectives, exchange experiences and transform current understandings of IPECP.

Our conference theme is Cultivating a Collaborative Culture: Sharing Pearls of Wisdom. We are now accepting abstract submissions in the following subthemes related to interprofessional education and collaborative practice:

  • SHARING models of best practice
  • INFORMING national, regional, and global policies and standards
  • ADVOCATING for health and wellbeing
  • EMBRACING diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging
  • PROMOTING safety in and beyond health services

As you may know, we were set to host this conference back in 2020 but in light of the unprecedented and global consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic impacting physical attendance at meetings, the meeting was rescheduled to 2023. We know many of you have been waiting to go back face to face to this meeting and we will do our best to make it worth the wait, intent on providing a unique and memorable experience for our global community of colleagues.

On behalf of the conference committees, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you to the All Together Better Health XI worldwide family in Doha!
