Collaborating Across Borders (CAB) is the premier North American conference focused on interprofessional education and collaborative healthcare. The CAB Conference was first launched in 2007 as a venue where educators, clinicians, researchers, policy makers, patients/family partners and students from both sides of the Canada-US border could engage in rich productive dialogue. The conference has expanded to a global audience in the last 15 years.

The eighth Collaborating Across Borders (CAB VIII) conference will be held virtually from May 15 – 18, 2023. CABVIII is hosted by the University of Toronto’s Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare and Education (CACHE) in collaboration with the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative (CIHC) and the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative (AIHC). The theme of the conference is Hope and Trust in Health and Social Care. CAB VIII continues the tradition of focusing on advances in interprofessional practice and education, research and innovation, and policy, systems and leadership with a newly added francophone stream.
