NICHE Conference 2015

Wednesday, October 28 - Thursday, October 29, 2015.
Delta Sault Ste. Marie Waterfront Hotel and Conference Centre
Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario


Welcome to the Strengthening Health Care Through Interprofessional Care and Simulation conference, proudly hosted by the Northern Interprofessional Collaborative in Health Education (NICHE) Conference. NICHE is a group of interinstitutional leaders, including faculty members, who hold key educational and clinical leadership roles in enhancing and advancing an interprofessional approach to learning, practice, and research in Northern Ontario. The goal of the conference is to strengthen and build NICHE as a pan-Northern academic consortium pursing excellence in IPE and collaborative practice through fostering scholarship in interprofessional education and practice in Northern Ontario.

NICHE is excited to partner with the Northern Ontario Simulation for Health Network (NOSHN) to deliver the 2015 Conference. Like NICHE, NOSHN encompasses the whole of Northern Ontario and includes representation from post-secondary educational institutions, but also represents hospitals, and other interprofessional health-care organizations.

Conference Objectives

At the end of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • • Cultivate a Northern Ontario vision for collaborative practice in health care.
  • • Promote and disseminate research in the field.
  • • Explore innovative educational strategies to prepare a “collaboration-ready” workforce.
