Before taking this course, you must complete The Interprofessional Collaborative Practice: What You Need to Know, a 1-hour, online course that introduces key concepts.
Understanding the fundamentals of collaborative care
Designed for health professions faculty and clinicians, this course introduces the basics of interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP). The course is offered in a self-paced, online format with a competency-based approach. Each lesson builds on previous content so they should be taken in order, but you can take them at a rate that works for you within the designated time frame.
Participants will also gain an understanding of the four core competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice, the basics of effective health care teamwork and how to lead an interprofessional team. You’ll learn from instructors who are experts both in IPECP and in online teaching. In addition, the course offers a flexible learning approach and can be completed anywhere, anytime.
The course offers eight CMEs through Creighton University’s Health Sciences Continuing Education, which has joint accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Creighton is the first university to receive this joint accreditation.
