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 returning to their home institutions, workshop participants will be better prepared to develop faculty teams with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement an IPECP plan.
Specific 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. Create 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 will be assigned prior to the face-to-face workshop, and the entirety of the Institute will afford opportunities for networking and a community of focused, collegial collaboration.
Participants will also receive on-site peer coaching and feedback on their IPECP projects from experts in the field of interprofessional education.
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):
*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.
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, as well as communicate effectively about IPECP.
The Institute will provide opportunities to interact with colleagues, speakers, and staff in information sharing and networking, including poster presentations. Pre-course readings will provide context and stimulate questions for exploration during the Institute. Daily electronic evaluations will serve to check on learning and reactions to each day’s events for continuous quality programming enhancement.
Registration includes the cost of the program, conference materials, breakfast, refreshments, and welcome and networking reception.
Airfare, hotel, transportation, and parking are not included. IPEC has contracted with a nearby hotel, although hotel reservations are the responsibility of each attendee. For more information, see Recommended Lodging.
