Over the last ten years Atlantic Connection Network members have had opportunities to work collaboratively toward a common goal: to attract, integrate and retain Internationally Educated Health Professionals (IEHPs) to the healthcare systems of Atlantic Canada. Conference 2015, “Atlantic Connection…Showcasing the Legacy” will celebrate progress towards this goal.  The focus will be on progress achieved and the planned and unplanned outcomes, which reach beyond original objectives.  Participants will share with colleagues, stories of where they began, where they are now and more importantly, where they are going next!  Presentation themes will reflect the five pillars of the Atlantic Integration framework:

  • Pillar 1: Pre arrival programs and supports for IEHPs
  • Pillar 2: Assessment and gap analysis programs
  • Pillar 3: Bridging/gap filling programs
  • Pillar 4: Workplace integration for the IEHP
  • Pillar 5: Community Integration for the IEHP and family members

This is not a forum for commercial purposes; there will be no marketing or selling of products or services. Presentations will be for knowledge sharing, display, and interactive discussion purposes only.

Simultaneous interpretation from English to French will be available for all plenary sessions and for breakout sessions offered in Ballroom A. Other breakout sessions and café presentations will be in the language in which the abstract was submitted.
