Academic faculty and researchers will join with continuing education providers to examine interprofessional education at a first-of-its-kind event at the 2013 ASHA Convention.
The Researcher-Academic Town Meeting, a popular invitation-only event for academic faculty and researchers, will team up this year with the ASHA Continuing Education Board Providers Workshop for "Interprofessional Education: Leading Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists Into a Collaborative Era."
As at previous town meetings, the dinner event provides an opportunity for networking and a keynote presentation. A special addition this year will be a pre-dinner presentation on the foundation of interprofessional education, including terminology, definitions, methodology and goals.
The after-dinner keynote address will feature Barbara Brandt, director of the National Center for Interprofessional Practice. At the University of Minnesota, Brandt is the associate vice president for education of the Academic Health Center and professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Care and Health Systems in the College of Pharmacy.
In recognition of the relevance and importance of interprofessional education and collaboration to improve outcomes for patients, clients and students, town meeting organizers have invited ASHA continuing education providers to participate in the event. ASHA is seeking to broaden interprofessional education opportunities for members across the continuum of pre-service education and continuing professional development.
ASHA's Continuing Education unit and Academic Affairs & Research Education unit are cohosting the event, which begins at 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13. Electronic invitations will be sent in mid-September. For more information, contact academicaffairs@asha.org.
