Dear Friends and Colleagues

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 12th SAAHE Congress to be held from Wednesday 26 June 2019 to Friday 28 June 2019 in Bloemfontein. The venue for this congress will be the spacious venues of the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of the Free State in the friendly city of Bloemfontein.

The theme of the conference is: “Challenge To Change Healthcare For 2030”. The theme promises futuristic and “out of the box” thinking about healthcare education. The sub-themes promise to cover most of the aspects needed in the toolbox of educators to train the healthcare worker of the future. The sub-themes include:

  • Inter-professional education and collaborative care (IPECP)
  • People-centred care
  • Innovative teaching and learning strategies
  • Educational challenges for the evolving burden of disease
  • Continuous professional development

The organisers are currently assembling a faculty of respected speakers, both locally and internationally. We aim to present an opportunity to you to be informed of the latest advances in healthcare education, as well as to catch up with colleagues and friends from across the globe.

Hope to see you there!

Mathys Labuschagne
Conference Chair
