Our attendees were treated to a variety of sessions and workshops that covered a wide range of topics pertinent to ambulatory care. Highlights included:

  • Oral and Poster Presentations: Researchers and practitioners shared their latest findings and innovative practices. Topics ranged from new patient management strategies to technological advancements in ambulatory care settings.
  • Interactive Workshops: Hands-on workshops provided attendees with practical skills and knowledge. Participants gained hands-on experience in implementing new technologies and care models.

One of the key highlights of the conference was networking, which provided us an invaluable opportunity to connect with peers, share insights, and discuss collaborative projects. This event fostered a sense of community and collaboration among participants, many of whom left with new connections and potential partnerships.
