Cohehre | Welcome



The 2018 COHEHRE Conference will find us meeting at Artevelde University College in Ghent, Belgium. The theme of this conference will give us opportunities to explore the ways in which we respond to rapid change in Health and Social Care policy and practice through education for our students, research and strategic management processes. We cannot know the challenges that our students, academics, researcher’s and strategic managers will face in the future so how can we acquire the skills to meet these challenges?


This conference will enable us to look at the threats and opportunities which rapid change poses and will offer potential responses through keynote lectures, workshops and paper presentations on the sub-themes of

  • Building resilience in individuals and communities
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Innovation and co-creation in development

This year, for your convenience, the conference book will be published online in advance of the event. I hope you will take the opportunity to view the conference book online when it is published, to contribute to the conference and to join us in Ghent.


All good wishes.


Jennifer Lewis Smith
President – COHEHRE
