Patient Experience Learning Forum, “Team-Ready”: The Role of Interprofessional Education and Practice in Patient Experience


Thursday, April 28, 2022


2:00pm - 3:30pm



Join us for an engaging session and interprofessional panel conversation about the role of interprofessional education and practice in patient care and experience.

In this session, the presenters will provide an overview of the history of inter-professional education (IPE) at the University of Michigan, where students are brought together from the 10 different health professional schools on 3 campuses to learn about each other’s professions, and how to work together in teams. The foundational accomplishments of the University of Michigan Center for IPE’s First Phase (from 2015-2021) will be described, as well as the strategic goal for the next Phase (from 2021-2026). The Center will now work with key partners across campus, including Michigan Medicine, to design and implement new experiences for students to improve the quadruple aims of health: health outcomes, patient experience, cost and efficiency, and provider well-being. The presenters and panelists will describe what is known about good interprofessional practice (IPP) and how cooperation, coordination, communication, and collaboration among the different professionals are essential to high quality care. They will describe and reflect on specific examples and experiences of exemplary models of IPP. They will also describe how members of the Michigan Medicine community can get involved in the work of the Center in this Next Phase. The target audience is all faculty, staff, and learners at Michigan Medicine.
