Abstract

Initiated in fall 2008, the annual Interprofessional Forum introduces the theme of interprofessional collaboration to an audience of approximately 600 first-year students drawn from the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences (dental medicine, health and rehabilitation sciences, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and public health). The required 2-hour program targets the following learning outcomes and goals: Illustrate the areas of expertise of various health professionals who provide patient care; Explore the importance of teamwork among health care providers from the patient's perspective, as well as to provide "complete" care and optimized patient functionality and quality of life; and Describe how health professions education programs are addressing interprofessional team skills and practice models.
