The 2016 Oxford ATBH VIII Conference

 

The 2016 All Together Better Health VIII conference steering group warmly invites you to attend Oxford, UK from the 6th. September until 9th. September 2016.  The title of the conference is  Values- Based Interprofessional Education and Practice which, with evidence–based practice underpins balanced decision-making by health and social care teams and service users.

At the very heart of values-based practice is interprofessional partnership, whereby people work effectively together contributing not only through their skills and experience, but also through insights and values-based perspectives.

All Together Better Health VIII 2016 will build on the content of previous ATBH conferences, reflecting the contemporary focus on improving health care for the population.

The conference will be jointly hosted by CAIPE, Oxford Brookes University and Oxford University and will take place from Tuesday 6/9/16 until Friday 9/9/16.

The plenary session will be held in The Sheldonian Theatre, an exquisite Grade I listed building designed by Sir Christopher Wren. This is situated in Oxford’s city centre and is the official ceremonial hall of the University of Oxford.  Whilst the parallel and poster sessions will take place in the historic University of Oxford Examination Schools which stand on the site of the Angel Inn, which is reputed to have been the finest inn in England.

The overarching theme will be Values- Based Practice which, with evidence–based practice, underpins balanced decision-making by health and social care teams and service users. At the very heart of values-based practice is interprofessional partnership, whereby people work effectively together contributing not only through their skills and experience but also through insights and values-based perspectives.

There will be a pre-conference research workshop on 6/9/16 facilitated by Scott Reeves. Details of the conference academic programme will be available shortly.

A welcome reception will be held on 6/9/16 at the Oxford Union and there will be a conference dinner at Balliol College on 8/9/16.

Accommodation will be available at a selection of Oxford colleges. Situated a short distance from the Examination Schools, staying in an historic Oxford college is a unique opportunity.  Delegates will have the opportunity to wander through the college’s gardens, parks and quadrangles or to take a punt along the river followed by a drink in the college bar. Alternatively there will be accommodation available at a selection of local hotels.
