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.

A roundtable discussion is a 60-minute opportunity that occurs during the continental breakfast wherein presenters share completed or in progress scholarly ideas, experiences, or projects pertinent to interprofessional education, collaborative practice, leadership, or policy. Those who provide a submission for this category will act as the discussion leader for their respective roundtable. Since certain topics lend themselves to a presentation by more than one leader, proposals from multiple leaders are welcome. This format allows for networking opportunities as well as peer feedback on projects that may be in progress. No audio-visual aids are to be used but presenters are welcome to bring handouts illustrating their work (anticipate up to 10 people participating in the round table discussion).
