The EACH Forum on Healthcare Communication (formerly the EACH Summer Event) provides an excellent opportunity for the community of healthcare researchers, educators & practitioners to retreat for a period of intensive interactive learning with colleagues from around the world.

The event is structured as a series of high-quality, HALF-DAY WORKSHOPS which will not only share knowledge but, importantly, provide new & practical skills. Also on offer are 2 inspirational plenaries & great opportunities for collaboration & networking which include a welcome drinks reception, event dinner and POSTER EXHIBITION with ORAL PITCHES.
