Interprofessional Education: It's About We, Not Me

Monday, August 22, 2022, 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

Interprofessional Education promotes teamwork and innovation across disciplines to transform the learning experiences across health-care professions. IPE practices were occurring at Jacksonville State University (JSU, Alabama) but were not operationalized to include IPECs core competencies. The last two years, we have developed an intentional plan to implement IPE across the University. With support from upper administration, we developed a strategic plan to integrate IPE at JSU, including identifying faculty championships, providing faculty resource support, and opportunities for collaborative scholarly work. We will present our process and a scalability of IPE at a regional university without a University Health System. We will also discuss utilizing various disciplines across our campus and community and innovative design for implementation. Lessons learned, strengths, opportunities, and limitations will be discussed.
