Interprofessional.Global: Global Confederation for Interprofessional Practice and Education

News from the international IPE community!

The World Coordinating Committee (WCC) for All Together Better Health (ATBH), a collaboration of regional networks from around the globe focused on interprofessional practice and education has changed its name to: 

Interprofessional.Global

Global Confederation for Interprofessional Practice and Education 

Following the ATBHIX Conference in Auckland, NZ, the WCC held a 3-day partnership development retreat attended by regional representatives from the US, Canada, India, Sweden, Qatar, New Zealand, the UK, Switzerland, South America, Indonesia and Africa, along with a representative of the World Health Organization (WHO). Along with a new name, the group also worked on a revised mission, vision, and set strategic priorities for the next two years. More information and a new website will follow in the next few months, along with opportunities for members of regional networks to get involved in the exciting work of Interprofessional.Global.
