The pandemic solidified the place of trusting relationships in the very fabric of society. At a prior CAB, psychological safety was highlighted as key to successful teamwork, and now more than ever we know that trust is vital to the relationship between care institutions and communities. Many of the challenges we face in health and social care hinge on building and maintaining strong collaborations founded on trusting relationships.Meanwhile, we have also experienced exhaustion as a collective; health care teams have been depleted by the many challenges of the past three years. Yet there is reason to hope. And hope is needed as we work together to build the systems and societies we envision.

With our theme this year, we propose that collaboration is a way back to hope and trust.

As a CAB community, we will listen deeply to diverse perspectives, and engage actively

in dialogue toward change and growth. Interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative healthcare as a field has been ever conscious of power and hierarchy and mindful of continually striving toward collaborative and inclusive processes, structures, and systems.

Our field has come so far and our work is more urgent and promising than ever. Join us, add your voice, and help shift and shape the future of health and social care, for a hopeful future.
