You are invited to submit your research for possible inclusion in the 2019 St. Catherine Summit.

St. Catherine University is excited to announce the 8th Annual Summit: The Art and Practice of Interprofessional Health Partnerships to take place on Monday, April 15, 2019 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre. This year’s Summit will re-imagine what interprofessional health collaboration looks like in clinics, companies, and communities. Building innovative teams is essential to meeting the health needs of patients, customers, and all members of our community.

We are seeking submissions from clinicians, industry leaders, policymakers, faculty members, and students from all disciplinary backgrounds to showcase a truly diverse and compelling lineup of innovative teams at the Summit. We are especially interested in highlighting work of creative professionals who are partnering outside their disciplinary background to advance health and wellness and who are developing innovative products, services, and policies that support quality healthcare in our community.

Submissions will be accepted for platform presentations, poster presentations and workshops according to the guidelines detailed below. Interprofessional teams that focus on any of the following prioritized themes are strongly encouraged to apply, though ALL interested presenters are encouraged to submit abstracts related to the art and practice of interprofessional health partnerships.

Prioritized themes for the Summit breakout sessions:

  • Women’s Health across the lifespan
  • Mental Health in our clinics and community
  • Public Health administered locally and globally
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Care of older adults
  • Interprofessional education and training programs to support team collaboration
  • Those accepted for presentation (platform, poster or workshop) must be present during specified times at the Summit on April 15, 2019. The deadline for submission is January 9th, 2019. Blinded submissions will be evaluated by a review committee for their originality, significance, and quality. Decisions will be registered in early February 2019.
