What is IPE?

“Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team. This is a key step in moving health systems from fragmentation to a position of strength.”

World Health Organization (WHO). (2010). Framework for action on interprofessional education & collaborative practice. Geneva: World Health Organization.

Avoiding One and Done: A Practical Model for Sustaining IPE Programs
Wednesday, November 29, 2017
3:00 pm (ET)

Presented by: Teri Kennedy, PhD, MSW, LCSW, ACSW, FNAP Director, Office of Gerontological & Interprofessional Initiatives, School of Social Work & Faculty Lead: Clinical Partnerships, Center for Advancing Interprofessional Practice, Education & Research (CAIPER), College of Nursing & Health Innovation Arizona State University

For fifty years the long and winding road of Interprofessional Practice and Education has been fraught with grant-funded projects that are not sustained past the end date and, therefore, do not build a vibrant IPE program. One problem is that planning for sustainability should accompany program implementation, but in reality it is often addressed well after an interprofessional program or initiative is underway or nearing the end of the grant period.

Join the National Center as Dr. Kennedy presents the model and provides real-life examples from current interprofessional practice and education initiatives.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Define four approaches to sustainability
  2. Identify factors that foster and hinder sustainability
  3. Discuss current interprofessional practice and education initiatives using the Kennedy Model of Sustainability

This webinar is FREE and open to everyone, including non-members. Online registration is now open!
