If you missed the excellent Dec. 12th Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) webinar that highlighted approaches to align interprofessional education and collaborative practice to improve population health outcomes, you may catch the archived webinar here.
Drs. Jessica Kruger (University at Buffalo), representing public health, and Dr. Teri Browne (South Carolina), representing social work, communicated their proven, innovative approaches for enhancing interprofessional learning among health professions students in preparing them for collaborative practice. Dr. Kruger highlighted a model of a successful student-run clinic and Dr Browne covered a wide range of dynamic curricular and experiential IPE activities, just a sampling of ways both schools are using to help position their students to move the needle on population health once they enter the workforce.
Professions engaged by the University at Buffalo and South Carolina in their exciting IPE work include: athletic training, dental medicine, genetic counseling, law, management, medicine (including specialty services in dermatology and OB/GYN), nursing, nutrition, pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences, physical therapy, physician assistants, public health and health professions, social work, and speech language pathology.
Ms. Elizabeth Weist (ASPPH) moderated the webinar on behalf of the IPEC planning committee.
