Bethune Round Table 2016: Building Collaborative Teams to Strengthen Global Surgery

Posted by GHO Admin on June 17, 2015 in Events

Dates: June 3-4, 2016
Location: Dalhousie University, Halifax Canada

The Bethune Round Table (BRT) is an annual interdisciplinary scientific meeting hosted at a Canadian academic centre to discuss challenges and solutions to improving surgical care to underserviced and marginalized populations in low- and middle-income countries. The objective of the BRT is to bring together health professionals from a variety of disciplines including surgeons, anesthesiologists, obstetricians, and nurses to share their research and experiences in the delivery of surgery in low-resource settings.

A multidisciplinary team at Dalhousie University is pleased to bring the Bethune Round Table to Halifax, Nova Scotia. The 2016 course will focus on the theme of “building collaborative teams to strengthen global surgery” including collaboration for clinical service, education, research, and advocacy. The course will explore examples of successful collaborations involving multidisciplinary teams which may include various medical professionals, health care administration, government, universities, or community associations.
