Background to the IAHCP Annual Scientific Meeting 2015 by Dr Mary Kelly



Dr Mary Kelly, IAHCP Executive Events Director, informed the conference that the 26th Annual Scientific Meeting and Medical Conference for the International Association of Health Care Professionals (IAHCP) has commenced!

She told the conference that the IAHCP was formed in 1957 to encourage Healthcare Professionals to invest more of their expertise in patient care and education through research, innovation and medical education. 

She emphasised that the theme of the meeting is Innovation for the Future and Beyond: Maintaining the Challenges in Medical Practice and Education in the 21st Century. She pointed out that the challenges facing healthcare professionals are many. According to Dr Kelly, the trend towards multi-professional working, research and education in healthcare are the modern ways of working in the twenty first century. There is a need to explore these topics in an interactive nature where all delegates are encouraged to participate in the various exercises and discussions during the proceedings.


She informed the conference that the format of the meeting will include key note speakers, lectures and presentations of research or projects, carried out by delegates from different parts of the world, including workshops and interactive sessions for all delegates to participate in, and learn together, in an informal environment.  The delegates were able to take advantage of the many of opportunities for networking and making new friends! 


During the four day proceedings, each sub theme was introduced by members of the IAHCP. These generated practical discussions and participation by all members.


In addition, Dr Kelly further informed the conference that the IAHCP usually host several conferences, congresses, courses and meetings annually throughout the World, which are open to all healthcare professionals to attend.


The conference noted that, in contrast, the IAHCP Conferences and Congresses are specifically designed and planned to welcome much larger audiences and are hosted at various cities. With many purposely selected venues chosen internationally, throughout the year. 


Dr Kelly went on to tell conference that the IAHCP has many publications, which include the International Medical Conference Services (IMCS) Proceedings and Abstracts Books,  the International Journal of Medicine (IJM) –, the Primary Health Care Journals (PHCJ) – , and the International Journal of Primary Health Care (IJPHC) – .  


It was further noted that one of the advantages of becoming a member of the IAHCP is that it will enable you to receive free copies of IJM and PHCJ Journals.
