When students and clinicians learn and work with colleagues from other professions, the outcome is better and safer patient care, according to the Institute of Medicine.
But how can academic programs integrate interprofessional education into their curricula? And how can clinicians integrate interprofessional practice into their work settings?
ASHA’s free, self-study webinar provides some answers. “The Why, What and How of Interprofessional Collaboration” (0.2 ASHA CEUs) offers an introduction to fostering collaborative teams and the skills needed to work effectively as a member of a team. The webinar covers:
  • First-person accounts from patients, students and families who have had positive experiences in health care and education settings that use interprofessional collaboration, and from those who have had negative experiences in places without collaborative practice.

  • Definitions of interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional practice (IPP).

  • Factors driving the move to collaborative practice.

  • Models of IPE/IPP in education and health care.

  • Skills needed to function in an IPP environment.

  • Resources and strategies for promoting IPE/IPP.

  • Answers to frequently asked questions.

The webinar presenters are four ASHA staff members: Deborah Dixon, director of school services; Ellen Fagan, director of continuing education; Lemmietta McNeilly, chief staff officer for speech-language pathology; and Loretta Nunez, director of academic affairs and research education.
