Nexus Summit 2017: Provocative Ideas for Practical IPE


About Nexus Summit 2017

Building on the success of last year's inaugural summit, the National Center team is excited to host Nexus Summit 2017: Provocative Ideas for Practical IPE. We are bringing together a community focused on advancing interprofessional team-based practice and education across multiple sectors within the United States. Together we will explore emerging ideas, apply practical skills and learn from role models - with a goal of affirming and advancing our collective commitment to interprofessional approaches to practice and education.

In the Nexus, we're bridging the gap between how current and future health professionals create people-centered and outcomes focused teams to learn together and develop real-world skills. We've heard from you throughout the year and are building your ideas into the 2017 Nexus Summit program. You will see a special focus on:

  • Affirming and advancing the commitment to teams: In a changing landscape, we are affirming our commitment to interprofessional practice and education together.
  • Resiliency and well-being: Our work together is vibrant and often challenging. We know that supporting the resiliency and well-being of teams is essential. It benefits not only the individual members of those teams - but those who are served by and engaged on the team.
  • Engaging leaders in IPE: Bring your leadership team because we know their engagement is a critical success factor in shaping and supporting IPE - this was one of the Center's earliest findings.

Nexus Summit 2017 is designed to provide an environment that fosters skill development, cultivates community and generates ideas that will advance interprofessional practice and education in your own environment while contributing to the national dialogue.
