The Missouri Area Health Education Centers are hosting a one-day virtual conference on Interprofessional Education (IPE) designed to provide attendees with skills and knowledge centered around dynamic interprofessional health care experiences that enhance patient care.  Key objectives include:

  • Strengthen ways in which academic environments prepare and incorporate students into practice environments. 
  • Engage with colleagues practicing in health care and education, interested in interprofessional education (IPE). 
  • Lessons in implementation of IPE to facilitate effective and patient-centered health care education and practice to promote critical awareness and more informed, timely decisions. 
  • Improve understanding of the provider needs to execute IPE in a busy practice and working in a diverse team setting. Focus on roles and responsibilities of IPE.

Competency 2: Roles/Responsibilities Use the knowledge of one’s own role and those of other professions to appropriately assess and address the health care needs of patients and to promote and advance the health of populations.

Competency 3: Interprofessional Communication Communicate with patients, families, communities, and professionals in health and other fields in a responsive and responsible manner that supports a team approach to the promotion and maintenance of health and the prevention and treatment of disease.

Competency 4: Teams and Teamwork Apply relationship-building values and the principles of team dynamics to perform effectively in different team roles to plan, deliver, and evaluate patient/population-centered care and population health programs and policies that are safe, timely, efficient, effective, and equitable.
