Addressing interprofessional practice in clinical education

ACAPT's National Consortium of Clinical Educators (NCCE) engages academic and clinical educators through partnerships to advance excellence and innovation in physical therapist education. NCCE membership is made up of one academic partner and one clinical partner from each ACAPT member institution. If you haven’t already done so, your academic program can join NCCE for free by registering your institution pair.


This presentation discusses the core competencies for interprofessional practice education (IPE), what IPE looks like in didactic training, and the outcomes and benefits of IPE toward building interprofessional collaborative practice. Presenters will go on to discuss the importance of enhancing and furthering IPE in the clinical learning environment, as well as practical strategies clinical instructors can use to teach and promote collaborative practice.
