IPEC 2018 Fall Institute

The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) will hold its next Institute on October 3-5, in Phoenix, AZ. It is entitled: Interprofessional Education: Advancing & Sustaining Your Program for Collaborative Practice. Additional information regarding this particular Institute follows.

Institute Focus

The institute will provide participants the opportunity to acquire and utilize knowledge and skills to further advance their existing institutional interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative practice program.

Health professions faculty and their IPE colleagues and collaborative practice partners will have both quality time and dedicated space for guided learning, team-based planning activities, and consultation with experts and peers in order to emerge with an advanced programmatic action plan to augment their current IPE and interprofessional collaboration (IPC) initiatives in program and outcomes evaluation and assessment.

Learning objectives for the institute are as follows:

1.    Appraise resources and commitments necessary to facilitate IPE program evaluation and learner assessment for value, effectiveness, efficacy, and sustainability.

2.    Analyze IPE promising practices aligned with institutional culture, practice/market environment, and experiential learning goals.

3.    Compare longitudinal learner assessment and evaluation research strategies in IPE that will contribute to measurable clinical practice and/or population health outcomes.

4.    Summarize the team’s IPE objectives and goals to institutional decision makers and external stakeholders.

Pre-course reading activities and institute-related assessments will be assigned prior to the face-to-face workshop, and the entirety of the institute will afford opportunities for networking within a community of focused, collegial collaboration.

Institute Format

Participants will engage with national leaders in developing long-term assessment strategies for their IPE program outcomes and efficacy. Teams will spend significant time interacting within their own groups to design assessment models around their current home institution IPE program designs and determine actions necessary to allow outcome data to help inform this programming. Opportunities to interact with other teams in information sharing and networking, including poster presentations, will further enhance team learning and collaboration-building. Pre-course readings will provide context and stimulate questions for exploration during the institute. Daily electronic evaluations will serve to check on learning and reactions to each day’s events for continuous quality programming enhancement.
