Description:The SingHealth Duke-NUS Education Conference 2019 is a landmark healthcare education event that aims to be the springboard to foster collaborations in education and boost scholarly efforts to improve patient care. With the theme “Building Resilience and Well-being in Healthcare Education through Interprofessional Collaborations”, the 2019 Conference emphasises the importance for healthcare professionals to develop resilience and keep a positive mind frame for sustainable healthcare, which fundamentally begins with education. As healthcare educators, we are responsible for creating positive learning environments for our learners and ensuring their well-being and readiness for future challenges in their professional practice. The Conference is therefore an opportune time for us to openly discuss this topic, and explore the use of effective strategies and tools to foster resilience, prevent burnout, develop empathy, and strengthen teamwork among healthcare professionals through interprofessional collaborations. The two-day Conference promises to challenge your thinking and inspire your passion for teaching, so as to raise our education standards to provide better care for our patients. Whether you are an educator or a learner, there is definitely something for you!
