The Organising Committee invites you to submit an abstract to the Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Health Professional Educators (ANZAHPE), on the Gold Coast from Monday the 7th to Thursday the 10th of July, 2014.  The theme of this year’s conference is Developing Health Professional Educators: Connecting Science and Theory with Learning for Clinical Practice.
The 2014 ANZAHPE conference will respond to the critical shortage of educators with the skills and experience needed to support the recent rapid expansion of health professional training programs globally. Its focus will encompass all of the health and social service professions, in the pre-qualification, post-qualification and continuing education domains, as well as large group, small group and practice-based learning settings. The conference aims to connect educational theory and evidence with learning and teaching practice in all of these contexts, as well as supporting the development of coherent connections between basic science understandings and their application to clinical problems among health professional learners.
ANZAHPE 14 will be situated in the common ground between educators in different health and social service professions, as well as between health science teachers and practitioners who support the learning of health professional students and practitioners in clinical settings.
