COVID-19 Response and Resources

COVID-19 Response and Resources


The National Center and the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative are committed to supporting health professionals, educators, learners, patients, families, communities, and you, to discover new ways to learn and practice interprofessionally. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our ability to work and learn about, from, and with each other is crucial to our response.

In our role as an unbiased, neutral convener, we’re compiling a selection of helpful resources, promoting the great work our partners are doing in response to COVID-19, and keeping you updated on the opportunities available to you. This page and its content are fluid, and we’ll try to keep it updated on a regular basis. We’re here for you.

The Nexus Summit 2020:

As announced on the Nexus Summit website, Nexus Summit 2020 is going virtual throughout the month of August, 2020. We know the Summit is an essential opportunity to learn from each other and connect with colleagues, while building practical skills and advancing scholarship. We encourage you to keep submitting your abstracts, as all peer-reviewed presentation opportunities are still available! Check back often for updates.


Connecting at the Nexus: COVID-19 Edition:

In the midst of this pandemic, interprofessional collaborative teams are more crucial than ever. Interprofessional practice and education is changing overnight, and health professionals and learners are finding new ways to learn online and in practice. The National Center is hearing from many of you who are looking for ways to find and share best practices and practical resources to facilitate interprofessional learning today.

Join us for Connecting at the Nexus: COVID-19 Edition, a series of web-based discussions, webinars, and forums to foster conversation, learning, and resource-sharing among leaders in interprofessional practice and education. All sessions will be recorded and archived. See below for scheduled webinars, and let us know what topics would be of support to you and your team. If you have a story to share about your response, send us your ideas for the series.
