Women's Health in Interprofessional Education
ADEA Symposium, March 2015
The 2015 Women’s Health in Interprofessional
Education symposium was planned in response to the 2013 HRSA Women’s Health Curricula: Final Report on
Expert Panel Recommendations for Interprofessional Collaboration Across the
Health Professions. With support from the OWRH at NIH and HRSA, this report presented a framework for the consideration of women’s health across health domains and levels of institutional preparedness to educate future health care practitioners appropriately. The March 2015 symposium included speakers from
medicine, dentistry and pharmacy who are using this framework to incorporate women’s health concepts into IPE curricula at their schools.
- How IPE initiatives may be used to advance women's health curriculum changes.
- Resources and policies that contribute to the science base for women's health research.
- Strategies that will promote and build interest in women's health across a lifespan.
