• All Together Now: Realizing IPE at Academic Health CentersAll Together Now: Realizing IPE at Academic Health Centers
    The Interprofessional Education Collaborative has identified six key challenges in the implementation of core interprofessional competencies which are foundational to successful IPE: 

    • Institutional level challenges  
    • Lack of institutional collaborators  
    • Practical issues  
    • Faculty development issues 
    • Assessment issues 
    • Lack of regulatory expectations.  

    How do we overcome these obstacles to truly move IPE forward? ADEA’s newest Leading Conversations webinar examines these barriers to IPE implementation and describes strategies to overcome them from the perspective of the university, the academic health center and the academic dental institution.
