The University of New England is pleased to invite UNE clinical affiliates and providers to attend an interprofessional education (IPE) training with two nationally recognized IPE experts, Brenda Zierler, Ph.D., RN, RVT, and Sarah Shrader, PharmD, BCPS, CDE. The training will be held on Friday, April 28th, from 8:45 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on the University of New England’s Portland Campus located at 716 Stevens Avenue and will feature two training sessions, one on interprofessional facilitation and one on collaborative community practice. The training is offered through the four year Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation grant that was awarded to UNE in 2015 which aims to improve healthcare outcomes through collaborative practice. The goal of the training is to help clinical preceptors, IPE facilitators, and practice leaders build skills to guide students in delivering collaborative and effective team-based patient care.
The objectives for the training are:
- Demonstrate an understanding of the value of interprofessional principles and their meaningful use in campus and clinical practice and education.
- Describe how IP facilitation is similar to and different from traditional teaching and learning.
- Analyze the core elements of IPE facilitation.
- Identify areas of where and how to apply these in your curriculum and activities.
- Identify and overcome barriers to implementing IP learning and facilitation.
- Demonstrate IP facilitation skills that can be implemented in classroom and clinical settings.
- Discuss the range of venues in which IP facilitation skills can be operationalized.
