that's a multidisciplinary team, partnership between primary and secondary care, 
between academics and practising clinicians or the essential 
patient-professional team.  Our aim is to attract family and integrated care 
physicians, patients and also colleagues from different disciplines who work 
together to get the best outcomes.  Our speakers and workshop leaders will 
address topics and issues relevant to low, middle and high income countries in 
an exciting mix of plenaries, debates and interactive sessions offering new 
insights and knowledge.</span></div>
