A Road Map to IP: Looking at Strategic Planning, Resources and Assessment

Interprofessional healthcare education (IPE) and clinical practice (IPCP) are associated with increased quality of care. IPE and IPCP are fast becoming a required component of accreditation platforms across many healthcare disciplines. Assessment of effective IPE and IPCP programs, however, can be challenging for many institutions, as resources and tools are few and far between. This workshop will focus on identifying and developing institution-specific resources and tools for IPE and IPCP program assessment. Participants will discuss and identify IPE and IPCP program assessment goals critical to their programs and outline a road map to arrive at these goals.

At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Define Interprofessional healthcare education (IPE) and clinical practice (IPCP).
  2. Identify a short or long term goal with measureable outcomes regarding IPE and/or IPCP at a home institution.

Appreciative Inquiry: Focusing on Organizational Core Strengths in Facilitating Change

Conventional organizational change and strategic planning processes use a problem-based approach while ignoring the life-giving, positive forces embedded in organizations and their members. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is designed to accentuate the positive forces in bringing meaning and life to a team, organization or community. It provides leaders, members and stakeholders with the opportunity to create positive change that bridges high ideals with a results-oriented mindset.

Learn more about Appreciative Inquiry and participate in the process by applying it to the opportunities in pharmacy education, as identified in the AACP Strategic Plan. Following this interactive, hands-on session, members will be able to apply AI at home institutions and will also have the opportunity to continue working on strategic plan priorities.

At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Learn how and why Appreciative Inquiry works and the underlying theories and principles behind it.
  2. Describe the differences between conventional organizational change and strategic planning based on problem solving approaches and newer approaches that focus on strengths-based organizational innovation and what gives life to an organizational system.
  3. Explore how the power of questions can accelerate and facilitate positive change.
  4. Experience how the four cycles of AI (Discovery, Dream, Design, and Deployment) are applied through AACP’s new strategic plan.
  5. Describe how to apply AI in your own organization.
