Mind Your P & Ps: Problems Faced by IPE Collaborative Initiatives and How to Address What Matters Most
Despite decades of interprofessional practice and education (IPE) “wins'’ regarding the need to prepare the current and future workforce for interprofessional competency attainment and achievement towards the Quintuple Aim (Quadruple Aim plus health equity), IPE initiatives remain one “P” away from failing. The success and sustainability of IPE continues to hinge on people, personalities, partnerships, programs, protocols, policy, payment, and politics. Presenters will review the historic and current barriers IPE programs face and present micro, meso, and macro level approaches interprofessional academic-community partnerships can employ beyond tenuous “hope and a prayer” strategies. Participants with current IPE initiatives will describe challenges faced through a P & P lens; analyze strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) to their IPE initiatives; and select and apply a tool tailored to their unique challenges. Innovative approaches to foster successful and sustainable IPE partnerships that achieve the Quintuple Aim that move beyond “practice or treatment as usual” will be explored.
