Interprofessional education and collaborative practice experiences are becoming an important piece of educational programs for health care professionals. Accrediting bodies are beginning to include interprofessionalism in their standards for accreditation. But maybe most importantly, health care workers today need some level of interprofessional education or practice experience to be effective in their professional roles on health care teams.
The 2018 Interprofessional Education Expo is intended to highlight interprofessional collaboration and teamwork at CHHS. It will offer participants an opportunity to learn with, from, and about other health care professions. Activities include grand rounds and student research posters. This will be an enjoyable and informative day for any and all CHHS students who attend.
The 2018 Interprofessional Education Expo will be held noon to 4 p.m., April 13 at the College of Health and Human Services. The theme for 2018 is Dementia in Aging.
