Reaching Rural Residents with IPE (R3 IPE), OHSU’s interprofessional community-based IPE initiative, funded by the National Center for lnterprofessional Practice and Education
Dr. Peggy Wros and Dr. Virginia Tilden are co-Project Directors of a prestigious new grant awarded by the National Center for lnterprofessional Practice and Education under its new initiative, Accelerating lnterprofessional Community Based Education and Practice. The goal of the Center’s initiative is to accelerate interprofessional education into community settings by collaborations between health professions educators and community partners. OHSU is one of 16 universities across the country selected for funding, with schools of nursing as the lead partner at each university. OHSU’s 2-year project, titled Reaching Rural Residents with IPE (R3 IPE), is a partnership between two of the School of Nursing’s nurse practitioner programs, the School of Medicine’s medicine program, the physician assistant program, and the Campus for Rural Health initiative. The project’s community partner is Klamath Health Partnership in Klamath Falls, with Klamath Open Door, a FQHC facility as the initial site for training. OHSU’s funding is a match by the OHSU Provost with National Center funding through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the John A. Hartford Foundation, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
