National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education
The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education is a public-private partnership that contributes to the transformation of health care by identifying ways to improve health, enhance patient care and control costs through integrating interprofessional practice and education. By rigorously aligning and integrating the needs and interests of health professions education with practice, the center aims to create a transformational “nexus” to incubate ideas, define the field, guide program development and research.
The center's work focuses on five core domains:
- collaborative practice and health system transformation
- education and training
- research, evaluation and scholarship
- innovative and novel models
