Development of a State-Wide IPE Faculty Toolkit
Developing effective interprofessional education (IPE) training activities can be challenging, and faculty at individual programs and schools often take on this task independently. In doing so, similar ideas are frequently recreated for implementation at multiple institutions, and considerable time may be spent in these duplicative efforts. This paper describes a new state-wide effort in Tennessee to compile classroom-based IPE curricular resources and activities being used across the state in order to reduce redundancy, increase efficiency and effectiveness, and ultimately improve training outcomes for students entering health-related professions. We focus on processes involved in developing this contribution to IPE education in order to emphasize feasibility and encourage similar initiatives in other regions.
