Heartland Interprofessional Education Conference Call for Abstracts

The 4th Annual Heartland Interprofessional Education (HIPE) Conference intentionally seeks to include a broader array of individuals. Not only do we encourage health care professionals to submit abstracts, but we are especially interested in recruiting more people who represent a variety of roles and perspectives in the community. As such, those of you who represent public health, the humanities, social services, education, legal, clergy, library, non-profit, and other community-based disciplines are encouraged to submit a proposal. Our updated categories reflect our desire to bridge the clinical and community arenas, while at the same time looking at the critical role that social determinants of health play in our efforts to address and better support patient and client needs. 

The 2022 Heartland Interprofessional Education Conference provides an opportunity for health care and community professionals, educators and students to share knowledge, build skills, develop professionally, and form collaborative relationships. Abstracts should represent original work in the areas of interprofessional practice, education or research. Submissions from a wide array of academic, health care and community professionals are encouraged.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines interprofessional education (IPE) as an experience that “occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other” (WHO, 2010).

Abstracts should be submitted in at least one of the following presentation categories:

  • Oral presentation (30 minutes): A presentation describing important interprofessional research, or innovations in curriculum, assessment, policy or practice. 
  • Workshop (60 minutes): Interactive sessions focused on the participants, who can expect to develop practical skills and/or gain useful knowledge as a result of their participation.
  • Poster (Thursday only): Poster presentations provide an opportunity for authors to share and discuss the results of their work with conference attendees and address the same topic categories as oral presentations. Poster presentations may represent works-in-progress.

Presenters will be required to register and attend the conference. Submission of an abstract represents author consent to the recording, publishing and/or distribution of the presented content through electronic, written or printed means.
