Event Overview
Welcome message:

We proudly announce the 14th International Conference on Communication in Healthcare (ICCH) organized by the European Association for Communication in Healthcare (EACH), which will take place from 7th till 10th September 2016 in Heidelberg, Germany.


Following a successful 2014 meeting in Amsterdam, attended by over 600 participants from 43 countries worldwide, Heidelberg will host the next EACH conference in September 2016. The conference is hosted by the University Hospital of Heidelberg, Department of General Internal Medicine and Psychosomatics and the Medical Faculty Heidelberg.



EACH is an interdisciplinary non-profit organization which brings together researchers and trainers in the field of communication in healthcare. A hallmark of EACH conferences is to foster interaction and exchange among participants. By doing so, the conference provides an excellent opportunity to reach the objectives of EACH: to facilitate the exchange of ideas and products of teaching and research activities across a network of individuals and institutions in Europe and beyond.


EACH is associated with and supported by the scientific journal Patient Education and Counseling. In organizing the conferences, EACH works closely together with the American Academy on Communication in Healthcare (AACH), who is the main organizer for the ICCH conferences in the uneven years.



Our conferences capture the teaching as well as the research part of communication in healthcare and focus not only on doctors, but as much on nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, dentists, etc. The conferences are therefore of interest to trainers, teachers, health care professionals and researchers.
