Institute Focus

To provide health professions faculty and their interprofessional colleagues both quality time and dedicated space for guided learning, team-based planning activities, and consultation with experts and peers in order to emerge with a programmatic action plan for developing and implementing interprofessional education curricula that will prepare students for collaborative practice (IPECP).

Upon conclusion of the Institute participants will be better prepared to develop interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP) programs .

Broad learning objectives for the Institute are as follows:

  1. Identify resources necessary to facilitate IPECP at one’s institution.
  2. Apply sound practices in IPECP curriculum planning, design, and evaluation to local program.
  3. Adopt learner assessment strategies for effective IPECP.
  4. Develop faculty skills for effective IPECP.
  5. Communicate the team’s IPECP objectives to decision makers.


In addition, registered teams and individual participants will be assigned preparatory readings and participate in the evaluation of the Institute.

Pre-course reading activities and asynchronous modules will be assigned prior to the virtual workshop, and the entirety of the Institute will afford opportunities for networking and a community of focused, collegial collaboration.
 
Participants will also receive virtual peer coaching and feedback on their IPECP projects from experts in the field of interprofessional education during and following the synchronous event.


Target Audience

  • Interprofessional faculty teams and their collaborative academic and/or practice partners committed to promoting IPECP
  • Individual educators and practitioners looking for tools and strategies to lead, develop, and implement IPECP


Team Composition (If Applicable)

Please note that it is not necessary to register as a team. Individual participants will also be accepted into the program.

The following conditions for interprofessional teams are highly encouraged, but not required (individual members may fit more than one category):

  • Two members who represent two different health professions, with at least one representative drawn from the nineteen IPEC professions;
  • One member with a firm foundation in IPECP, IPECP relationship development, and collaborative practice; and
  • One member with institutional responsibility for interprofessional curricular planning.
  • One community health partner.*


*If your institution is associated with a healthcare service facility such as a VA, local community health center, or affiliated medical center, or a partner organization, such as a local health department or community-based agency, please strongly consider adding a representative from that facility to your team.


Institute Format

Participants will engage with national leaders in acquiring the building blocks for IPECP.  Institute attendees will spend significant time planning, building, designing, assessing, and acting on their IPECP goals and projects, as well as communicate effectively about IPECP.

The Institute will provide opportunities to interact with colleagues, speakers, and IPEC staff in information sharing and networking, including virtual poster presentation sessions that will occur during post-Institute sessions. Pre-course readings and asynchronous modules will provide context and stimulate questions for exploration during the synchronous sessions. Evaluations will serve to check on learning and reactions for continuous quality programming enhancement.
