Getting a Seat at the Table: Librarian Involvement in Interprofessional Education Activities
April 27, 2017, 12:00-1:00 PM ET
Librarians and libraries are often the one resource that understands the scope of the various health fields and serves each with the same respect. With the mandate by major health science accrediting agencies to incorporate Interprofessional Education Activites (IPE) into professional training programs it would be natural to have a librarian involved in that process. But making this happen isn’t simple. This presentation will include an overview of IPE and suggestions on how librarians can become involved, as well as a case study of how one librarian got a seat at the IPE table.
