• To engage in forward looking dialogue around the importance of aligning health professional education with the needs of clinical practice, consumers and the healthcare delivery system.
• To explore the opportunity for shared decision-making, distributed leadership and team-based care, among other interprofessional education and practice innovations, to fundamentally change health professions curricula, pedagogy, culture, human resources, and assessment and evaluation metrics.
• To discuss how innovations in interprofessional education will impact patient and population health as identified through the “triple aim” of better health, higher quality and lower cost.
