“Cultivating a Collaborative Culture: Sharing Pearls of Wisdom”

Pre-conference workshops – ATBH  2023

We are also seeking proposals for preconference workshops that explore current and emerging topics related to Interprofessional Education and/or collaborative practice. The topic does not have to correspond with the overall conference theme/ subtheme. These 3-hour interactive “Masterclass’ sessions aim to impart specific skill sets to participants that they can apply in their own settings. This consists of an introduction to the workshop followed by the main interactive component with ample opportunities for audience participation, interaction and discussion. We welcome co-facilitation.

PLEASE NOTE the deadline for submissions for the pre-conference workshops abstract is EARLIER than all other submissions: The deadline for submissions is 15 January 2023 (23:59 GMT+3). We regret after this date we are unable to accept any further submissions. Decisions will be announced in February 2023.

Abstract submission for pre-conference workshop is now closed.
