While reflecting upon the event, Majid shared that the conference is an annual occasion for OT and PT faculty and students to discover our global campus and develop an understanding of the different ways Moroccans and other global professionals operate in these fields.
“I think it is important for our health care professionals to be exposed to as many international health care systems as possible,” he said.
Kris Winston, Ph.D., OTR/L, FAOTA, program director and associate professor of UNE’s Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (M.S.O.T.) program, explained how the theme for this conference showcases the importance of interprofessional collaboration and communication across a global community of OT and PT practitioners.
“As a whole, the conference highlighted the significance of interprofessional work aimed at providing better services for the clients we collaborate with,” Winston said.
