Summits and Forums
PATA forums are an important capacity-building platform for peer-to-peer knowledge exchange. These forums are the foundation to growing the PATA network and expanding our scope of work.
PATA Summits and Forums are collaborative meetings where multiple cadres of health professionals and lay service providers, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, counsellors and community health workers, and peer supporters convene for technical capacity-building, peer-to-peer exchange and the design of promising practice pilot projects.
PATA Summits and Forums utilise a variety of session formats that are informative, interactive and orientated to move discussion from policy to practice, with a focus on innovation and real world solutions. The forums culminate in health facility teams drafting quality improvement action plans that will be tested as a pilot project or as a quality improvement initiative.
