Conference Overview


Continuing the highly successful Collaborating Across Borders Conference series, CAB IV is the fourth joint conference that links Canada and the United States around interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional practice (IPP). CAB IV will continue the traditions established by previous CAB conferences by focusing on the themes of interprofessional education, practice, leadership and policy in a North American context. The conference will feature best practices, showcase evidence-based outcomes and lessons learned, and provide a venue for scholarly dialogue and productive networking.


*NEW* Keynote Speaker: Regina Holliday


Regina Holliday is an artist, speaker and author in Washington DC. She writes about the benefits of HIT and timely data access for patients and families. She painted a series of murals depicting the need for clarity and transparency in medical records. This advocacy mission was inspired by her husband Frederick Allen Holliday II and his struggle to get appropriate care during 11 weeks of continuous hospitalization at 5 facilities. Regina paints and speaks at medical conferences throughout the world. Her work is visual reminder of the patient in the center of any policy debate and technical application. She also began an advocacy movement called “The Walking Gallery.” The Gallery consists of medical providers and advocates who wear patient story paintings on the backs of business suits. Her artwork has been in peer-reviewed journals such as the BMJ and APA journals. She recently wrote a book "The Walking Wall: 73 Cents to the Walking Gallery".


Call For Abstracts


The following broad themes - Education, Practice, Leadership, and Policy - have been chosen for CAB IV in order to encourage a wide range of abstracts that illustrate robust research and emerging evidence of efficacy related to IPE and IPP as well as crazy ideas that no one thought would work – but did. The voices of students, patients and families, educators and practitioners, researchers and policy makers are all welcomed.
