Living in the Nexus: Lessons Learned from the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education Two-Part Webinar Series
In September 2023, a special issue of the Journal of Interprofessional Care was released, featuring the synthesis of more than a decade of work through deep engagement within and across the US. From the work, an approach, knowledge-based IPE leadership, has emerged.
Join us for two special interactive webinars that will take a deeper dive into featured papers from the Special Issue. Our goal for this Special Issue is that our lessons learned will inspire energy to address today's challenges and provide opportunities for health and learning outcomes that matter.
National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education 2023:
Reflecting Back, Looking Forward
Thursday, October 19, 2023
11 am - 12 pm Central Time
The National Center was created to “advance a national healthcare workforce trained to work in patient-centered, team-based settings” (Chen et al., 2013; HRSA, 2012 ). To address the growing disconnect between health professions education and the rapidly transforming US health system, a compelling vision, called the Nexus, was proposed.
During this webinar, we will discuss the background of why there is a National Center, its operationalization, the evolution of the Nexus vision, and milestones over the last decade and importantly, emerging themes and implications for the future.
From the Nexus Vision to the NexusIPE™ Learning Model
Thursday, December 7, 2023
12 - 1 pm Central Time
The exponential growth of the field of IPE in the past decade teaches us many lessons. The NexusIPE™ Learning Model emerged in continuous reflection on work with numerous collaborators and content analysis of papers in the special issue of the Journal of Interprofessional Care. Christine Arenson and Barbara Brandt will describe examples of wake-up calls and critical events that led to recognizing why we need to add another approach to IPE into practice and community settings.
In this sense-making webinar, the model will be described: the three Ps, design principles, the cycle of learning in practice and community settings, emerging data science and developmental evaluation methods, and the role of the Nexus partnership.
