Not your ordinary conference: we are flipping it!

This will not be an ordinary conference where we sit and listen to lectures and panels. We want to make most out of our face-to-face time together by holding discussions, learning from and encouraging each other.

We want to learn from each other what are the implications of our research/projects to make Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice a cornerstone in building effective systems for health, improving the health outcomes of persons and communities, and in solving complex problems.

So, we will be having a flipped conference. Participants will receive a poster booklet beforehand, allowing them to prepare for the various oral and poster sessions. This means that every presenter (oral and poster) has to submit an electronic poster beforehand by 19 July 2019.

After each oral session, the presenters of that session will meet around tables with colleagues, who have posters presentations related to the same topic/theme. They will discuss what they can learn from each other’s work; and the importance of the various project for taking Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice forward in Africa.

To stimulate discussion, presenters will also have the opportunity to ask questions they would like the audience to respond to relating to their work.
