The Institute of Medicine has announced that the IOM Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education is holding its second 2-day public workshop on November 29-30, 2012. The workshop, “Educating for Practice: Learning How to Improve Health from Interprofessional Models across the Continuum of Education to Practice," will continue the dialogue on linking interprofessional education (IPE) and practice that started at the global forum's August 2012 workshop.
The workshop objectives are to derive principles and lessons learned from sustained and exemplar IPE models across the continuum of education; identify and examine academic/practice partnerships that demonstrate purposeful modeling to advance team-based education and collaborative practice; and to learn from IPE exemplars across the education/practice continuum that link to better health, higher quality and improved value for individuals and populations.
The workshop will be held at the Keck Center in Washington, DC. For more information, please visit the meeting's website.
