The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) is pleased to offer an opportunity for faculty teams to attend the Interprofessional Faculty Development Institute focused on Quality Improvement and Patient Safety on May 4-6, 2016. The overall goal of the institute is to create faculty champions who can enhance interprofessional curricula, learning experiences, and assessment of learners in quality improvement and patient safety.
Faculty across the health disciplines will come together to explore how to embed quality improvement and patient safety (QI/PS) content into their curriculum, while learning how to create and assess clinical QI/PS projects. Pre-course reading activities will be assigned prior to the face-to-face workshop, and the post-course period will afford opportunities for online networking and a community of practice. Upon returning to their home institutions, workshop participants will help to develop faculty with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement an interprofessional education plan focused on quality improvement and patient safety.
The interprofessional teams will draw faculty from Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Osteopathic Medicine, Pharmacy, Public Health, and other professions as appropriate. Ideally, teams of 3-5 members will attend, and the teams should include one member who represents one of the IPEC professions; one member with a firm foundation in interprofessional education (IPE), IPE relationship development, and collaborative practice; one member who has knowledge of quality improvement and patient safety; and one member who is in a position to affect curricular changes in his/her home institution.
Workshop Objectives: As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
