You are invited to submit your work for possible inclusion in the St. Catherine University 2019 Summit.
St. Catherine University is excited to announce the 8th Annual Summit: The Art and Practice of Interprofessional Health Partnerships to take place on Monday, April 15, 2019 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre. This year’s Summit will re-imagine what interprofessional health collaboration looks like in clinics, companies, and communities. Building innovative teams is essential to meeting the health needs of patients, customers, and all members of our community.
We are seeking submissions from clinicians, industry leaders, policymakers, faculty members, and students from all disciplinary backgrounds to showcase a truly diverse and compelling lineup of innovative teams at the Summit. We are especially interested in highlighting work of creative professionals who are partnering outside their disciplinary background to advance health and wellness and who are developing innovative products, services, and policies that support quality healthcare in our community.
Submissions will be accepted for platform presentations, poster presentations and workshops according to the guidelines detailed below. Interprofessional teams that focus on any of the following prioritized themes are strongly encouraged to apply, though ALL interested presenters are encouraged to submit abstracts related to the art and practice of interprofessional health partnerships.
Prioritized themes for the Summit breakout sessions:
Those accepted for presentation (platform, poster or workshop) must be present during specified times at the Summit on April 15, 2019. The deadline for submission is January 9, 2019. Blinded submissions will be evaluated by a review committee for their originality, significance, and quality. Decisions will be registered in early February 2019.
As healthcare becomes more complex, collaboration between health care practitioners is critical to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, safety, and quality of patient care. Interprofessional education at St. Catherine University prepares students to be leaders with team-based clinical experience providing holistic, research-based patient-centered care.
