Interprofessional Preceptor Summit

Brief Description
The summit consisted of interactive professional development opportunities to learn more about intentionally offering interprofessional education and collaborative practice opportunities in "real world" practice environments. For many, enhancing the team-based care that you are already involved with and meaningfully engaging the learners in this work is all that is needed to have a positive impact on their training.  By engaging in this professional development and providing these experiences for learners, participants had the ability to enhance patient care experiences, their satisfaction as a preceptor and ultimately engage interprofessional learners in "value-added" benefits to their practice.

Who Should Participate?
The target audience was individual/interprofessional team of practitioners that are preceptors, from any type of practice setting who are interested in developing or enhancing interprofessional practice and education at their site. Other individuals include experiential education/clerkship directors and administrators.  Everyone was welcome (including preceptors from in the community and across the state)!

Learning Objectives
1.  Discuss the key concepts of intentional interprofessional education and practice for learners in authentic practice settings.
2.  Identify opportunities for enhancing interprofessional education in your practice setting.
3.  Develop an approach to debriefing and/or providing feedback about interprofessional collaboration to support and enrich the interprofessional practice for learners.
