Presenting at the Nexus Summit:
Interprofessional leadership models based on hierarchy and personality are no longer relevant in today’s complex healthcare environment.  Contemporary leadership preparation requires experiential learning deeply embedded in IPEC® and leadership competencies.  In this workshop, participants crosswalk IPEC® and leadership competencies and practice ways to operationalize them in fast-paced clinical settings.

While working with patients from vulnerable populations can be very rewarding and fulfilling, healthcare team members need support in order to avoid burnout. In this workshop, we demonstrate segments of a newly-developed eight-step process for fortifying and energizing IP healthcare teams who work with high risk patient populations.
