Message from Chairs

Greetings (Salam) from Doha!

A warm welcome to the 11th biennial conference of All Together Better Health (ATBH X) to be held in Qatar in November 2023 bringing this event to the Middle East for the first time! ATBH is the leading global interprofessional education and collaborative practice conference, previously hosted in Japan, Australia, Sweden, England, Canada, United States and New Zealand.

ATBH is under the direction of the Global Confederation for Interprofessional Education & Collaborative Practice (Interprofessional.Global). Every two years, 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. ATBH is driven by the conviction that concerted action to improve working together will effect change, enhance quality of care, ensure safety, and optimise deployment of human resources.

Our 11th anniversary conference theme is Cultivating a Collaborative Culture: Sharing Pearls of Wisdom. The subthemes are based on:

  • ADVOCATING for people centred care, health and wellbeing
  • EMBRACING diversity of stakeholders
  • INFORMING regional and global IPE policies and standards
  • PROMOTING safety in and beyond healthcare settings
  • SHARING models of best practice in interprofessional education & collaborative practice

We welcome all practitioners, educators, researchers, students, academics, administrators, policy makers, service users and patients from healthcare, policy, education and industry 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.

On behalf of the conference steering committee and its subcommittees, we are very much looking forward to seeing you in Doha, Qatar in November 2023!
