About the Conference Series

The CAB conference series is the premier, signature event for the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative in partnership with the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative focused on interprofessional education and collaborative practice. The series was launched in 2007 to provide a way in which educators, clinicians, researchers, policy makers and students from both sides of the border could engage in rich, productive dialogue.
The conference is held biennially and alternates between Canada and the United States. CAB VII will be held on October 20-23, 2019 at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, Indiana and will continue the traditions established by previous CAB conferences by focusing on interprofessional education, practice, leadership and policy. The conference will feature best practices, showcase evidence-based outcomes and lessons learned, and provide a venue for scholarly dialogue and productive networking.

Call for Abstracts

The abstract submission deadline was at 11:59 MST on Sunday, March 31, 2019. The review process is currently taking place and selections will be announced in early June.
