View presentation slides.


Elena Umland, PharmD

Co-Director, Jefferson Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education and 
Associate Provost for Interprofessional Practice & Education at Thomas Jefferson University

Description:  Interprofessional education (IPE) is gaining momentum as it is not only required by a growing number of accrediting bodies, but more importantly, it is a key element in addressing the triple (quadruple) aim of healthcare moving forward.  This presentation will focus on the importance of making connections among faculty and practitioners as a means to making connections and building team skills among our future healthcare professionals.  Faculty are encouraged to bring any IPE idea(s) that they may have to date and will engage in conversations with peers across disciplines.  Through sharing what has worked (and hasn’t worked) at a 12-year old IPE center, attendees will walk away with their own, ‘next steps’ in IPE.
