The Road to a College-Wide IPE Day: Focus on Interprofessional Communication


College leadership desired practical strategies for advancing IPE as value-added in the context of managing the scheduling challenges presented by a diverse health professions educational curricula at Old Dominion University, College of Health Science. Faculty input regarding potential strategies was sought via a College-wide retreat and interviews with key informants. The majority recommended that a College-wide IPE day be instituted; highly visible and well resourced. The poster describes pre-event preparation, outcomes related to the event, and "lessons learned" from the process.
