IPEC Announces 2013 Faculty Development Institute
Important Update: The 2013 IPEC Faculty Development Institute has reached maximum capacity. Please complete the form at www.ipecollaborative.org/2013_Registration.html if you wish to be waitlisted. We will be monitoring registration closely and will notify you if space becomes available.
The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) invites faculty teams to attend the Interprofessional Faculty Development Institute for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety on May 20-22, 2013 at the Dulles Hyatt in Herndon, VA. The overall goal of the institute is to create faculty champions who can enhance interprofessional curricula, learning experiences, and assessment of learners in quality improvement and patient safety at the point of care. Faculty across the health disciplines will come together to explore how to embed quality improvement and patient safety (QI/PS) content into their curriculum, while learning how to create and assess clinical QI/PS projects. Pre-course reading activities will be assigned prior to the face-to-face workshop, and the post-course period will afford opportunities for online networking and a community of practice. Upon returning to their home institutions, workshop participants will help to develop faculty teams with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement an interprofessional education plan focused on quality improvement and patient safety.
