Guanghua International Education Association (GIIEA), a non-profit organization, has been working closely with healthcare educators, researchers, practitioners, managers and policy makers inside and outside China for many years. GIEA arranges different education, research and innovation activities to advance Chinese healthcare, especially in effectively linking research, education and practice.
The 2012 conference was held in London with more than 150 delegates and over 60 from China. It entailed 15 sessions with presentations from China, Europe and Canada. The conference established an excellent platform for healthcare professionals from China and other countries to exchange experience and knowledge and this will now be taken forward in Lisbon in November 2013.
