Addressing Population Health Through Community-Based Interprofessional Collaborative Practice


This poster highlights strategies and curricula utilized in the University of South Alabama's interprofessional collaborative practice initiative. Additionally, it provides recommendations for implementation and lessons learned from our initial work conducting during our first two project years. This project includes two distinct groups of individuals, low-income geriatrics and homeless individuals, in which interprofessional health teams are working to improve population health outcomes. While many institutions have emphasized interprofessional education, our intent was to integrate core competency training into clinical experiences in community-based settings to develop interprofessional skills as well as impact population health.
