Improve health care, promote the field of medical librarianship, and advance your career by getting involved in interprofessional education! Many institutions are still just beginning to prepare health services professionals to collaborate on health care education and delivery. Librarians and other health information professionals are uniquely positioned to shape the way that interprofessional initiatives unfold at their institutions.
Rebecca Carlson, AHIP, and Jamie Conklin will introduce you to the basics of interprofessional education and practice (IPEP) and show you how you can create new developments in IPEP. You will develop an interprofessional education roadmap that addresses the core areas of library services integration into interprofessional education—academic, clinical, and community engagement. And you will create and share an individualized action plan for IPEP involvement at your institution. #MLAInterprofessional
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- define interprofessional education and describe the librarians’ role in IPEP.
- identify local, regional, and national opportunities for engaging in IPEP.
- write and share goals for individual involvement in interprofessional education.
Any academic or hospital health information professional who wishes to become involved with interprofessional education. No previous knowledge or skills required.
