Building Interprofessional Education for Population Health 

Date and Location: April 29 – May 1, 2015, at the Dulles Hyatt in Herndon, Va. (Arrival Tuesday, April 28. Institute begins at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 29, and concludes Friday, May 1, at 12:00 p.m.)

Institute Purpose: To guide faculty teams in creating actionable plans for implementing interprofessional projects that advance interprofessional curricula, learning experiences, and assessment in collaboration with community partners for improving population health. Projects will focus on cultivating productive academic-practice partnerships, building faculty expertise, and enhancing student learner competence in interprofessional education that prepares graduates for collaborative practice towards enhancing population health in targeted communities.

Target Audience: Interprofessional faculty teams of three to five individuals from across the health professions along with their selected academic and/or practice partners.

Team Composition: The following are required (individual members may fit more than one category):

  • Two members who represent two different health professions, with at least one representative drawn from the six IPEC professions;
  • One member with a firm foundation in interprofessional education (IPE), IPE relationship development, and collaborative practice; and
  • One member with institutional responsibility for curricular planning.

A member with expertise in public health is strongly encouraged to provide population health principles and methods to each team. Priority registration is granted to teams bringing a community-based partner (e.g. state or local public health department, clinic, social services agency, hospital, health center, payer, etc.).

Institute Objectives: As a result of this initiative and within a two-year timeframe, participants will be able to:

  • Build effective and sustainable relationships with partners striving to improve population health
  • Create competency-based, practice-oriented curricula for improving population health
  • Integrate public health students into interprofessional curricula/learning and practice collaborations
  • Assess student learner competence, educational programming, and health outcomes in the target population
  • Implement faculty development in population health at one’s home institution(s)
  • Communicate the team’s aims in using IPE for improving population health

Format: Participants will engage with national leaders in acquiring the building blocks for IPE oriented to improving population health. Teams will spend significant time interacting within their own groups to plan, build, design, assess, and act on their IPE goals as well as communicate effectively about IPE. Opportunities to interact with other teams in information sharing and networking, including poster presentations, will further enhance team learning. 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.

Registration Fee: The fee to attend the conference is $1,395 per person, which includes the registration fee, breakfasts, lunches, and hotel accommodations for three nights.

Team Registration: Those interested in attending are encouraged to register their teams early, since the institutes reach capacity quickly. Please note that registrations cannot be processed until all team members have been identified and full payment has been received. Team leaders should be identified and register all members of their team at one time. Register at www.ipecollaborative.org.
