Welcome to the Office of Interprofessional Education and Practice
The dynamics of the current healthcare environment and the needs of the communities we serve call for a collaborative approach as we focus on learning how to provide the safest and best quality of care for all persons. The Office of IPE&P endeavors to create and implement educational experiences to address the four competencies under the domain of interprofessional collaboration, which are: values/ethics, roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication, teams, and teamwork. As we work together to learn and apply these Core Competencies of Interprofessional Collaborative Practice, we emphasize the value of each profession and the role interprofessional teams play in addressing the Quintuple Aim of improving population health, reducing costs, enhancing the patient experience of care, improving the work-life of health providers, and the most recent focus on health equity.
We invite you to peruse our site and explore opportunities for interprofessional growth with us.
