New Report Promotes Research in Interprofessional Continuing Education

ACCME News Release (12/08/17)

Continuing education leaders offer strategies in a new report for advancing research on the effectiveness of interprofessional continuing education (IPCE) in improving healthcare team performance and patient care. The report, "Promoting Research Across the Continuum of Health Professions Education: Making Patient Care Better," summarizes the 2017 Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education Leadership Summit. At the summit, continuing education leaders from 30 institutions across the country shared strategies, best practices, and case studies for conducting and disseminating research that shows how IPCE programs contribute to measurable improvements in team care and patient outcomes. Highlights from the report include research recommendations and addressing health priorities. For example, invited guest Scott Reeves, professor in Interprofessional Research at Kingston University and St. George's University of London, and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Interprofessional Care, offered recommendations on how to successfully conduct and publish research. Additionally, research projects discussed in the report addressed health priorities such as rural population health, obesity prevention, advance care planning and caring for underserved populations. The report also documents the experiences of those who collaborated with students, faculty and practicing clinicians from across the health professions.
