Vanessa Webb a final year Emergency Health/Nursing double degree student from Monash University has been awarded a scholarship by AIPPEN to attend this year’s All Together Better Health (ATBH) Conference in Kobe, Japan (5-8 Oct).

The scholarship was awarded for Vanessa’s involvement in the following papers: Development of a web-based interprofessional education site: Preliminary findings and A cross-sectional study of paramedics’ readiness for interprofessional learning: Results from five universities.

Vanessa’s supervisor Dr Brett Williams was thrilled for Vanessa “This scholarship was nationally sought after and obviously highly competitive, and will provide an important part of her journey as an interprofessional health care researcher.”

“I also believe this is a real coup for the paramedic profession. Having professional identity at such a prestigious interprofessional conference is important for our discipline”.
