The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education is pleased to present Preceptors in the Nexus: Interprofessional Learning IN Practice.

To further support networking and learning after six months, the Preceptors in the Nexus (PIN) team will offer a two-hour online symposium and “office hours”.

From Return on Investment to Integrated Care: What You Need to Know to Advance Team-BAsed Care

This interactive, hands-on workshop series is designed to provide teams with the skills and competencies needed to deliver – and sustain - optimized care coordination and integrated care through effective teamwork. Over the course of three days, teams will explore key principles of sound fiscal and sustainable team-based care to demonstrate return on investment, while practicing with tools to embed, evaluate and improve care coordination and integrated care in daily practice through team and teamwork.

During this workshop, teams will participate in a series of activities to build capacity in both the implementation – and sustainability – of team-based care.

This workshop is well-suited for individuals or clinical teams, academic-practice teams or academic teams preparing students for interprofessional team-based practice.
