Interprofessional Big Data

Increasingly, the delivery of health care is relying on big data to understand trends to optimize care and improve health outcomes. Anyone with an interest in interprofessional health informatics would benefit from this introductory level-course designed to build awareness and understanding of the national interprofessional research context for large data science and how it will guide everything from patient care, care management, risk management, patient satisfaction and decision support.

This course may be of particular interest to:

- Members of Nexus teams (health care and education collaborations) exploring how to leverage big data to support solutions for interprofessional practice, education and scholarship

- Health care administrators and clinical professionals desiring to understand basic principles of big data science and how it can guide decisions around care

- Health IT professionals seeking information about current trends in big data science

- Individuals with an interest in learning more about interprofessional big data science and its role in advancing interprofessional practice and education

Defining Your Nexus WorkshopDefining Your Nexus: Building the Foundation for Aligning Practice and Education

Through our work across the United States, the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education Team is learning important lessons with our national partners every day. First and foremost, our work is teaching us about what it takes to create and sustain interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPE) with the goal of benefiting all stakeholders in health. Based upon what we are learning, the National Center Team has created Defining Your Nexus, a practical workshop to accelerate the work of health professions education and community-clinical teams.

The goal for attendees is to create a strong foundation of knowledge for teams that advances IPE efforts while effectively responding to unpredictable, but inevitable changing relationships with academic and community partnerships.

Preceptors in the Nexus WorkshopPreceptors in the Nexus

The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education is pleased to present Preceptors in the Nexus: Interprofessional Learning IN Practice. This two-day workshop in Minneapolis offers interprofessional teams the knowledge to enhance interprofessional learning and team-based collaborative practice at their site. 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”.  This feature will encourage accountability for the teams to implement an interprofessional learning IN practice project to work toward implementing intentional interprofessional education and transforming practice environments.
