Our biennial ATBH Conferences

Join with us every two years in devising and testing strategies to mobilise concerted action to improve health and wellbeing for individuals, families and communities across the world. ATBH is driven by the conviction, corroborated by evidence, that by learning together we improve working together to effect change, enhance quality of care, ensure safety and optimise deployment of human resources. Practitioner, service user, teacher, manager, policy maker or researcher, each conference is your opportunity to compare perspectives, exchange experience and share expertise. Previous conferences were held in London (2006), Stockholm (2008), Sydney (2010), Kobe (2012), Pittsburgh USA (2014), and Oxford (2016). The conference attracts more than 600 delegates.
