Interprofessional Education Projects for Undergraduate and Graduate Programs

featuring Amy Bigham, DNP, FNP-BC and Andrea Collins, DNP, NP-C

  • Description
  • Objectives
  • Presenters
The Institute of Medicine Report upholds interprofessional collaboration among healthcare providers as the key to advancing the health of our nation. Nurses in all clinical areas and all levels of practice serve as the care coordinator for patient care activities, yet nursing education has historically done little to prepare graduates for collaborative care. This presentation will explore innovations in teaching to promote interprofessional collaboration and education among undergraduate and graduate nursing students and other healthcare disciplines. An interprofessional education (IPE) program implemented in a private university will be explored. Two projects will be used as exemplars for IPE. Successes, perils, and pitfalls of each program will be discussed.
  • Analyze significance and core competencies of interprofessional education.
  • Develop strategies to assemble an interprofessional team and design an interprofessional education project in higher education.

Andrea Collins, DNP, NP-C

Andrea_Collins_DNP_NP-CAndrea Collins is an Assistant Professor of Nursing in the graduate program at Samford University, and a practicing family nurse practitioner with DNP, MSN, BSN, and ASN degrees from Samford University. Her clinical experience in adult primary care and chronic pain management has focused heavily on integrating traditional, complementary, and alternative medicine strategies and practitioners in a holistic approach to patient care. Her increased interprofessional collaboration efforts identified the need for a heavier emphasis on interprofessional education throughout the health sciences. Dr. Collins is a founding member of the interprofessional education team at Samford which initiated a 2 year pilot program with pharmacy faculty members to increase collaborative efforts between pharmacy and family nurse practitioner students. She and her colleagues have presented the initial results of this ongoing pilot program at numerous education conferences.
