Interprofessional Practice Conference 2019

September 06, 2019

IPEP HSN proudly presents the 5th annual Interprofessional Practice Conference:


The Conference is a full-day event focusing on the psychosocial care needs of patients.

As health professionals, we must be equipped to provide person centred care within collaborative, multidisciplinary teams. Encounters with the health system can be distressing and anxiety-provoking for patients and families. Clinicians must develop the skills to sensitively assess and manage emotional, as well as physical needs.

Hear from expert speakers on topics relating to holistic health practice, with a series of talks discussing the management of challenging emotional situations in healthcare. Develop your leadership skills by working with a multidisciplinary team in problem-solving and case-based scenarios.

The conference will run from 10:00am to 4:00pm, with registrations opening at 9:45am.

Collaboration starts now.

Tickets available through Eventbrite:

Early Bird Tickets are onsale NOW until Midnight on Sunday 25 August. Ticket sales close Midnight Thursday 5 September.

Make sure to register for your chance to branch out, meet fellow health-care students and acquire key skills in interprofessional practice.
