This online, self-paced, interactive learning module demonstrates the importance of interprofessional practice among health professionals to improve and protect population health. The duration of the module will take approximately ninety minutes to two hours. The module is divided into three chapters – one set in an outpatient clinic, one at a local public health department, and one at a multidisciplinary meeting after the outbreak has resolved. The scenario is based on a multi-state foodborne outbreak that occurred in 2015-16 but the details of the patients, clinicians and local health department featured are fictional.
This module was developed collaboratively by the four national associations that comprise the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Academic Partnerships to Improve Health (APIH) initiative with expertise, guidance, and funding provided by CDC. The APIH associations are: American Association of Colleges of Nursing, Association for Prevention Teaching and Research, Association of American Medical Colleges, Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health
