An Interprofessional Learning Community

The NexusIPE™ Emerging Leaders Forum is limited to 30 participants in order to foster the development of a professional learning community. Apply early to reserve your spot! The application process requires three elements: 

  • a description of our IPE Innovation Project
  • a letter of nomination from a senior leader at your institution
  • Your CV or resume

Why should my senior leader support my participation in the NexusIPE™ Leadership Forum?

  • Interprofessional education is now mandated for accreditation in most pre-licensure health professions programs and is recognized as a Milestone requirement for graduate medical education. Faculty with enhanced skills in developing, accessing, and sustaining interprofessional partnerships that effectively meet the needs of academic programs and practice partnerships will be crucial to meeting this educational requirement in ways that have a positive impact on health and learning outcomes locally.
  • Being a member of an effective team is now recognized as critical to addressing burnout and retention issues across the health workforce. Local practice leaders (site medical or nursing directors, administrators, leaders of social service agencies and many others) will need to develop sustainable strategies to improve interprofessional teamworking that support local health and workforce goals to meet this critical issue.
  • As interprofessional practice and education initiatives continue to expand, health and education institutions need to develop a local cadre of "on the ground" leaders who have the skills, strategies, and tools to create effective sustainable and impactful interprofessional initiatives that lead to improved health outcomes for people served and improved learning and teamworking skills across the continuum of health professions workforce, from entry level education programs, graduate programs, and continuing professional development of the current workforce. 
  • Preparing local emerging leaders to practice Knowledge-based Leadership to enhance interprofessional teamwork and health and learning outcomes that matter in sustainable, impactful ways will prepare local institutions (education, healthcare, and social services) to meet the future given both our current challenges in the health workforce and patient equity, and future challenges from Artificial Intelligence (AI), the ever increasing quantity of data and information from our knowledge-based economy.
