InterProfessional Education eXchange: A National Program to Advance Interprofessional Education in Cancer Care
Is your team interested in developing an interprofessional education curriculum related to palliative care? The University of Louisville Interdisciplinary Program for Palliative Care and Chronic Illness has received funding to assist faculty teams in their efforts to develop such curricula and teaching activities. This national training program, iPEX (InterProfessional Education eXchange), offers training, mentoring and resources to selected teams. Teams selected in 2018 found the mentoring and workshop beneficial and are already making progress on the projects they developed.
You are invited to form a team and apply for this national training program. Funded by the National Cancer Institute (R25CA203637), iPEX has research components and IRB approval. Participants will be involved in a series of webinars, attend a skill development workshop and will receive mentoring from an experienced faculty team. Grant funds will cover all materials as well as most travel, housing and meals. Eight to 10 interprofessional teams of 3-5 health science faculty will be selected in 2019. The application is now open through April 30, 2019.
