"In 2009 six national education associations of schools of the health professions formed a collaborative to promote and encourage constituent efforts that would advance substantive interprofessional learning experiences to help prepare future health professionals for enhanced team-based care of patients and improved population health outcomes. These organizations that represent higher education in allopathic and osteopathic medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, and public health created core competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice to guide curricula development across health professions schools."
"The National Center is charged to provide the leadership, evidence and resources needed to guide the nation on interprofessional education and collaborative practice. In that pursuit, we aim to challenge tradition and create a deeply connected, integrated learning system that will transform education and care together."
"The mission of the Texas Interprofessional Education (IPE) Consortium is to create a Texas Community of Practice (CoP) specializing in interprofessional practice and education in order to share best practices, facilitate the successful implementation of team-based collaborative care in a variety of practice settings, and develop collaborative, innovative, and interprofessional pedagogies that will transform healthcare education across the state of Texas."
