Following the 3-day partnership development retreat in September 2018, The World Coordinating Committee (WCC) for All Together Better Health (ATBH), a collaboration of regional networks from around the globe focused on interprofessional education and collaborative practice, changed its name to Interprofessional.Global
INTERPROFESSIONAL.GLOBAL – WHO ARE WE?
Interprofessional.Global facilitates support and exchange between the interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP) networks, establishes relationships with other like-minded organisations and welcomes and supports new networks sharing the same aims and values. It also selects institutions to host future All Together Better Health (ATBH) conferences, overseeing the work of local planning committees, maintenance of standards and evaluation.
The ATBH conferences are driven by the conviction that by learning together we improve working together to effect change, enhance quality of care, ensure safety and optimise deployment of human resources. Delegate numbers have increased year on year, as has the involvement of students and service users. The conference content demonstrates the steady growth of IPECP in terms of evidence base and significance to health care.
ATBH also provides a forum for the growing number of national and transnational IPECP networks to share their work and debate common issues and has been a proving ground for the development of a global network, first InterEd and from 2012 the World Coordinating Committee and now Interprofessional.Global: The Global Confederation for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice.
