In light of the evolving COVID 19 pandemic, we would like to inform you that the ANZAHPE 2020 conference, 2020 Vision for Learning Cultures, will no longer proceed in its original face-to-face format.
While July is several months away, the ANZAHPE Committee of Management and the Local Organising Committee are aware of the forecasts from the WHO about the potential spread of the disease. We are also mindful of the unprecedented restrictions on travel and gatherings of groups, which are clearly necessary to limit further spread. With this in mind, we wish to convey a clear decision at an early stage to give certainty to all stakeholders.
The conference registration portal will be closed. For those who have already registered, information about refunds will be available shortly. We remain committed to serving our members and are exploring options to disseminate health professions education research and enhance the professional development of our members. Further updates will be issued in the coming weeks.
Irrespective of the above decision regarding the conference, we wish to inform authors of abstract acceptance decisions to acknowledge the hard work of people who submitted and reviewed abstracts. Information about abstract decisions has been communicated to presenting authors.
We appreciate your understanding and would like to thank all who have engaged with and supported us around ANZAHPE 2020. We wish you the very best.
