AIHC Webinar Series: Exploring the Impact of Aligning Interprofessional Education and Practice on Patient Outcomes

AIHC Logo AIHC Affiliate Conference

Overview: The Interprofessional education movement is increasing in health professions curricula. However, the need for this training in “real” practice environments is not widely reported in the literature.  In response, there have been recent calls for improved alignment of interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP).  In addition, assessing the influence of this type of interprofessional learning on patient outcomes is important.  During this webinar, the presenters will describe the educational needs of aligning IPECP and measuring the impact on patients.  The presenters will use their IPECP model as a case-study to highlight the influence of interprofessional learners as value-added and discuss meaningful ways that this type of alignment can create healthcare practice transformation.  Finally, the presenters will use the Triple Aim as a framework to describe the impact of IPECP on patient outcomes.


  • Describe the need for alignment of interprofessional education and practice

  • Identify opportunities for measuring the impact of interprofessional education and practice on patient outcomes

  • Discuss a case-study that explores an IPECP model and the outcomes for patients
