Funded programs will receive technical assistance, expert consultation and resources from the National Center to accelerate their interprofessional education and collaboration efforts in community settings. The National Center, based at the University of Minnesota, is a unique public-private partnership charged by its funders to provide the leadership, evidence and resources needed to guide the nation on the use of interprofessional education and collaborative practice as a way to enhance the experience of health care, improve population health and reduce the overall cost of care.

  • Participation by the initiative team in a mandatory three-day kick-off institute, New Models of Care Require New Models of Learning, scheduled for October 24-26, 2016;
