The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) is proud to announce the sixth event in our 2018 IPEC Webinar Series aimed at highlighting trends and activities in interprofessional education (IPE) and practice.
According to the Health Resources & Services Administration August 2018 statistics, there are 17,445 designated Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) and 4,268 designated Medically Underserved Areas/Populations (MUA/P) across the country. Within those population areas,74 million Americans live in primary care HPSAs, more than 55 million live in dental HPSAs, and over 107 million reside in mental health HPSAs. Many of these individuals live in areas identified as having all three types of shortages. Widening and improving access to health care for the medically underserved continues to be a serious growing national concern. A variety of innovative programs are necessary to train more providers and offer greater and better access to underserved areas.
Panelists will share remarks on how to foster and support interprofessional collaborative practices to serve underserved populations and contribute to the reduction of health disparities.
Panelists for the webinar include:
Continuing Education Credits: Eligible attendees may receive one Certified in Public Health (CPH) continuing education credit or one continuing nursing education (CNE) contact hour for participating in this webinar. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is an accredited CNE-provider by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
