OHSU to offer its first Interprofessional Continuing Education course in March 2018

Dec. 19, 2017

The goal of the OHSU Interprofessional Initiative, launched in 2012, is to prepare all OHSU students for deliberately and intelligently working together to build a safer and more effective patient-centered and community-oriented health care system within Oregon and across the United States, ultimately impacting the health and well-being of populations worldwide.

Now, OHSU is extending interprofessional practice and education to area practitioners through an exciting continuing education opportunity. Next March, OHSU will host its first-ever interprofessional course.

"This course is a cutting-edge opportunity to learn in an interprofessional setting about issues affecting your patients and practice that were not included in most training programs until very recently," said Nels Carlson, M.D. '92, assistant dean for continuing professional development, OHSU School of Medicine.

The CE program is being jointly planned and provided by a number of schools and programs across the university: the OHSU Nutrition Graduate Program, OHSU School of Dentistry, OHSU School of Medicine, OHSU School of Nursing, OHSU-PSU School of Public Health and OSU/OHSU College of Pharmacy.

Course topics include immigrant/refugee health in Oregon, gender identity diversity in health care and cannabinoid concerns. Optional tours will be offered of the Mark Richardson Interprofessional Simulation Center.

Attendees who register with their interprofessional team of two or more will receive a discount. The course has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
