Save-the-date for the next Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Interprofessional Faculty Development Institute, taking place January 12-15, 2014 at the Dulles Hyatt in Herndon, VA.

The purpose of the institute is to facilitate teams in developing an institutional-based project to undertake interprofessional curricular change in their home institutions.  Through guided experiences and resource utilization, teams will create an implementable action plan to advance projects focused on improving learner competence and skills in quality improvement and patient safety through an interprofessional learning model.  

The overall goal is to create faculty champions to enhance interprofessional curricula and student learning experiences in quality improvement and patient safety at the point of care, through team-focused activities designing an institutional-based project.  

Registration opens Wednesday, December 4. Those interested in attending are encouraged to begin assembling their teams now, as conference capacity has been reached within hours for all of the prior institutes. Teams should consist of three to five members with at least one member well-versed in QI/PS, one member representing an IPEC profession and one member in a position to affect curricular change.
