Creating an Effective National Movement for Interprofessional Education and Training. A Joint Proposal.
Washington Univ., Seattle. Human Services Policy Center.
The Interprofessional Education and Training (IPET) Network recently assessed what is needed to foster a vital nationwide movement to develop interprofessional education and training as part of the normal mode of professional preparation for child and family services. It was decided that the top priority should be to facilitate the exchange of information, ideas, and experience among people involved in professional preparation for this field; although many people and institutions are engaged in professional preparation, too many are having to reinvent old wheels and live through mistakes others have made before them. This proposal presents strategies to achieve this desired exchange of resources. Following a detailed overview of the proposal, contents are: (1) "List of Current National IPET Network Members"; (2) "Forging New Links: The Electronic Component of Enhanced Interprofessional Communication"; (3) "National Academy for Professional Development: Advancing State and Regional Assistance Networks for Collaborative Practice"; (4) "Network Coordination and Conference Development"; and (5) "Proposed Budget." Attachments include "Qualifications and Capacity of Lead Participants" and "The National Professional Development Academy: A Draft of Proposed Goals, Format and Content." (Contains eight references.)
