Faculty development for continuing interprofessional education and collaborative practice

Ivan L Silver, Karen Leslie
Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions 2009, 29 (3): 172-7
This article proposes a framework for faculty development in continuing interprofessional education (CIPE) and collaborative practice. The framework is built on best practices in faculty development and CIPE. It was informed by local experience in the development, delivery, and evaluation of a faculty development program to promote capacity for dissemination of concepts relating to interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional collaboration (IPC) in health care environments. Interprofessional education has been demonstrated in clinical contexts to enhance interprofessional collaboration, patient care, and health outcomes. With curriculum design, teaching methods, and educational strategies in faculty development, it is possible to enhance the impact of IPE in clinical contexts. Faculty development activities themselves can model effective interprofessional education methods and practice. An IPE curriculum and teaching and education strategies are outlined. Strategic planning, including the application of a systems approach, attention to the principles of effective learning, and an outcomes-based curriculum design are recommended for the development of continuing IPE faculty development programs that enhance interprofessional collaboration.
