A Special Invitation from the International Practice Development Collaborative (iPDc)

…to healthcare professionals engaged in practice development and related fields who are committed to improving healthcare and moving towards person-centred practice and cultures.

…and to all healthcare leaders, managers, clinicians, teachers, and researchers interested in learning more.

The international community of Practice Development is meeting in Switzerland for the first time! Pack your bags and come join us for a hands-on, reflective journey of learning and transformation. The conference provides an opportunity to network with healthcare professionals in the field of Practice Development from across the globe and learn how to enhance healthcare practices across sectors, settings, and specialties.

We will focus on a top priority which is leading and facilitating within practice development.

Practice Development provides the life flow for the methodology and theory in our practices, helping us shift and transform the quality of healthcare experiences for patients and their families and carers alike and for ourselves too.

Practice Development helps us all to meet goals for

  • Patient and family engagement
  • Interprofessional collaboration and learning
  • Healthy work environments
  • Evidence-informed practices
  • Patient safety

The conference will take place in Basel

Congress Center Basel
Messepl. 21, 4058 Basel

Consistent with Practice Development, the conference format will challenge the norm: engaging delegates through interactive keynote events, concurrent presentations and discussions, creative show & tell, and dynamic workshop experiences. Through a consistent and delicate balance of theory and application, delegates will leave energised with knowledge and tools for immediate translation into practice in the workplace.
