The ASPIRE Model: Grounding the IPEC core competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice within a foundational framework
Interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional collaborative practice (ICP) are essential to achieving high-quality patient care. Leading IPE/ICP requires training in new knowledge and skills that most health professions faculty and clinicians lack. To guide this training, the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) defined interprofessional collaboration through four core competencies: (a) Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice, (b) Roles/Responsibilities, (c) Interprofessional Communication, and (d) Teams and Teamwork.

Telehealth Primary Care: Clinical Workplace Learning and Building the Interprofessional Academic Primary Care PACT/Medical Home
Health professions clinical training programs often lack telehealth training experiences despite available technology and clear benefits to patients. To address this gap, Boise & San Francisco Telehealth V-IMPACT Hubs in the Centers of Excellence in Primary Care Education partnered with the Atlanta VAMC Telehealth V-IMPACT Hub to design telehealth curriculum for health profession education in PACT.
In VA's Office of Academic Affiliations Seattle Center of Excellence in Primary Care Education, pharmacy and psychology presence in the precepting room with medicine and nurse practitioner trainees has led to frequent informal consults and facilitated warm handoffs between professions, including PC-MHI. New curriculum focused on warm handoffs promotes communication and exchange of different profession perspectives about optimal transitions of care between primary care team members.
