“Learning Together in the Nexus: A Focus on What Matters Most”

As the National Center celebrates 10 years of growth in the field since its founding in 2012, we continue to be impressed with the steadfast commitment to advancing care and learning across practice and education, while acknowledging there is additional opportunity to accel as the practice and education community continues to innovate through challenges to achieve outcomes that matter most to those they serve.

This year, we invite stakeholders in health to showcase their interprofessional innovations designed to improve care and learning outcomes. With increasing frequency, we observe - and encourage - practice and education partners intentionally working together to link health professions education and health systems for simultaneous interprofessional workforce development of future and current health professionals.

We are excited to come together to learn from, with and about the work you are doing to change practice, education and health for the better. This year’s Nexus Summit 2022 features a call for abstracts aligned with the National Center’s five strategic imperatives. These imperatives were informed by the National Center’s professional and lay (individuals, families, and community) advisors and partners as well as the local and national practice and education community and represent the focus and priorities for continued development to support the advancement of the field. 

Nexus model
The Nexus is designed to intentionally link the health professions education and health systems for interprofessional workforce development of future and current health professionals while simultaneously demonstrating learning and health outcomes.

Strategic Imperatives: Five strategic priorities emerged from Nexus Summit 2021 and are shaping the National Center’s work.  They also serve to inform the Nexus Summit 2022 Call for Abstracts. These imperatives represent priorities expressed by the practice and education community - and remain important areas of focus for the National Center.
