De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute – College of Pharmacy, in collaboration with the University of Santo Tomas – College of Rehabilitation Sciences, Angeles University Foundation – College of Allied Medical Professions, and the Philippine Interprofessional Education and Collaboration Network (PHIPECNet) will be hosting the Second Asia-Pacific Interprofessional Education and Collaboration and Philippine Interprofessional Education and Collaboration Joint International Conference (#COLLABforASIA2020) with the theme: “Transforming Asian Healthcare and Social Welfare through Interprofessional Education and Collaboration in the 21st Century” this coming January 11-12, 2020 in our Institution.
This international conference is both a regional and global strategy and response to the call to action towards interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP) as mandated by the World Health Organization (2010). The overarching goal of this international event is to improve a portion or overall aspect of health and social welfare in different communities and populations within the Asia and Pacific regions. To do this, the PHIPEC Net (https://phipecnet.org) strategically collaborated with three Philippine universities to advance the following tripartite aims through this international conference:
- To solidify the organic network composed of IPECP champions in the Philippines and within the Asia-Pacific regions;
- To inform, share, and exchange ideas about gaps and best practices in IPECP within the region through various teaching-learning methods across settings, areas, and societal levels;
- To foster new partnerships between and across universities, governments, organizations, institutions, and communities that are committed to advance IPECP locally and internationally; and
- To announce a declaration of commitment towards IPECP among identified champions, stakeholders, and direct and indirect beneficiaries within the education, health, and social welfare systems
