IPEC Institute Faculty Development Conferences
The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) of 20 national education associations of schools of the health professions advance substantive interprofessional learning experiences that prepare health professionals for enhanced team-based care of patients and improved population health outcomes.
IPEC sponsored the development of four core competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice and hosts two team-based faculty development institutes a year (spring and fall) for teams to identify an institutionally based project and develop an implementation plan to embed interprofessional education within their health professions schools. This collection includes posters that describe the development and implementation of these projects.
Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice
- Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice - Work with individuals of other professions to maintain a climate of mutual respect and shared values.
- Roles/Responsibilities - Use the knowledge of one’s own role and those of other professions to appropriately assess and address the healthcare needs of the patients and populations served.
- Interprofessional Communication - Communicate with patients, families, communities, and other health professionals in a responsive and responsible manner that supports a team approach to the maintenance of health and the treatment of disease.
- Teams and Teamwork - Apply relationship-building values and the principles of team dynamics to perform effectively in different team roles to plan and deliver patient-/population-centered care that is safe, timely, efficient, effective, and equitable.
