Health Education England – The South West Multi-professional Educational Conference

Friday 14 Oct 2022

Taunton Racecourse Conference Centre, Taunton , OR Virtual, Online

Welcome to our inaugural hybrid HEE-SW Multi-professional Educational Conference. This event is free of charge. 

The aim of this conference is to re-connect educators from the multi-professional arena across the South West, to enable working together for a better future in healthcare practice and education.

The conference will provide you with examples of best practice linked to key strategic intent and our day-to-day work and includes the following themes: Equality Diversity & Inclusion, Well-being & Professional Support, along with Simulation, VR & Digital Technology in Education. The day will involve bringing together clinicians, educators, and experts in their field(s) for a day of talks, discussions and networking. There will be plenary sessions, instructional courses, and workshops with a diverse range of topics to satisfy a variety of educational needs. There will also be the opportunity for poster presentations from both trainers/educators and learners across all the multi-professional fields.  

As a hybrid event, there is the opportunity to attend virtually or face-to-face, which will hopefully enable networking across the region again.  

Face to face numbers are limited, if we have become full on face to face you will be offered a virtual place. For the virtual programme please click here
