    IPE PORTAL Advances Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Education

    High-quality, peer-reviewed, competency-based learning modules for interprofessional health education now are available through a new innovative online portal launched by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC). Based on Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice, these materials are designed to provide tools to prepare tomorrow's health professions work force for interprofessional, team-based, patient-centered, and community- and population-oriented care.

    Funding support was provided by the Josiah Macy Jr Foundation and IPEC, a national organization connecting health professions for better care. IPEC's founding members are the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, the American Dental Education Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the Association of Schools of Public Health.

    APTA served on the Advisory Committee for the IPE PORTAL, representing both the association and the Interprofessional Professionalism Collaborative (IPC), for the development of this new interprofessional education portal.   

    The IPE PORTAL collection is open for submissions. Inquiries should be directed to mededportal@aamc.org.
