Interprofessional Education: Partnering among GME, UME and other professions to enhance the Value of Care

Recent developments and reports demonstrate that interprofessional, team-based care is transforming the U.S. healthcare system, for a variety of reasons. For years, we have known the importance of Graduate Medical Education’s influence ultimately on how and where physicians practice. Concurrent to the transforming delivery system, there is a recent resurgence of interprofessional practice and collaborative practice in undergraduate medical education and continuing professional development as evidenced by the national Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) competencies, LCME accreditation standards, and a recent IOM report, Measuring the Impact of IPE on Collaborating Practice and Patient Outcomes, and Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education. The Association of Academic Health Centers recently learned that incorporating IPE into GME programs is a critical success factor for the future. Yet, scant attention has been formally paid to the role of IPE in GME and other post-graduate health professions programs, as an intentional design at the program development level.

This session has been designed to address the following topics:

    • What are the national drivers to link IPE and GME today?

    • What is the current evidence that IPE makes a difference, or not? What is the current state of research linked to quality improvement?

    • How can we take advantage of innovations in medical education and other professions to stimulate IPE innovation across the health professions education continuum?

    • How can the clinical & community environments be leveraged to intentionally learn about interprofessional, team-based practice in real-time, particularly in the face of current realities of GME?

    • How can IPE be integrated into the ACGME milestones and requirements of other professions?

    • How can GME and other post-graduate (e.g., pharmacy, dentistry, nursing, psychology, and others) be engaged to meaningfully prepare all professions together to be “collaboration-ready” for practice in today’s evolving U.S. Healthcare delivery system in new models of care (e.g., oral health, behavioral health, care coordination, integration of heath care, and value- and outcomes-based models)?
