Full Description

 

Skill-based Workshop Call for Abstracts

The National Center is seeking abstracts that address provocative and practical interprofessional team-based practice and education in the U.S. through 90-minute active-learning, practical, skills-based workshops. Workshops are intended to showcase National Center-affiliated programs that are collecting data to contribute to the collective IPE knowledge base. Workshop leaders will offer practical tips and will convey specific knowledge, skills and/or competencies. Workshops will be held August 21 and 22, 2017.

The workshops should address one or more of the following topics:

  • Getting to Know Each Other: How do you get started? What are tips for streamlining and supporting various stakeholders in health to work and learn together? What approaches make a difference in achieving learning and health outcomes?
  • Promoting Teamwork, Patient Safety, and Quality Improvement in Interprofessional Practice and Education: How can interprofessional practice and education leverage what is known about teamwork education to achieve outcomes that reflect better overall health and stronger clinical experiences at a lower cost? What are you learning about teaching patient safety and quality improvement?
  • Access to Care: For underserved and rural populations, how is your Nexus project improving quality of experience for patients/people, families, communities and learners; sharing responsibility for achieving health outcomes and improving education; and reducing cost and adding value in health care delivery and education? What are new and practical tips for effective IPE?
  • Linking Outcomes to Reducing Costs in Health Care and/or Education: The highest goal for interprofessional practice and education is to demonstrate added value of learners (e.g. students, residents, health professionals with patients/people, families and communities) to practice. How is your project demonstrating this value in your work with the National Center? And, how are you engaging your own constituents to advance your work locally?
