MedEdPORTAL’s Interprofessional Education (IPE) collection is designed to foster the identification, development and deployment of educational resources aimed at supporting team-based or collaborative care essential to training an interprofessional workforce. With funding from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, the IPE collection is an emergent product of collaboration between members of the Interprofessional Education Collaboration (IPEC)*, the American Psychological Association, Physician Assistant Education Association and the American Physical Therapy Association. This collection is designed to create a national clearinghouse of competency-linked learning resources for interprofessional education and models of team-based or collaborative care in support of the IPEC report: Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice.
CLARION is a University of Minnesota student organization dedicated to improving health care through interprofessional collaboration. Since 2002, CLARION has hosted the U of M local student case competition for health professional students, enabling them to achieve a 360-degree perspective on patient safety in today's health care system and how it might be improved. Student teams, consisting of four students, comprised of at least two disciplines, are given a case and are charged with creating a root cause analysis. The team presents their analysis to a panel of interprofessional judges that evaluates their analysis in the context of real world standards of practice. CLARION expanded the competition to the national level in 2005.
