Partnership comes straight from the heart of interprofessionalism. Working in partnership reflects the unity we see in working with, for and between service providers and service users. Partnership is one important way in which the unity of a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach is demonstrated to the world.

The AfrIPEN team invites all interested persons and institutions to a 2-day workshop prior to the Second Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice for Africa conference to explore possibilities for closer collaboration.
