Since its establishment in May 2016, the Creighton Center for Interprofessional Practice, Education and Research (CIPER) has launched a variety of initiatives.
CIPER began the second year of IPE 400 Introduction to Collaborative Care, an interprofessional course for all Creighton health sciences students, and is now offering a faculty development companion course, CED 400 Introduction to Collaborative Care, to faculty and alumni.
The CIPER team also has been working closely with partner CHI Health to ensure that University Campus, opening in January 2017, is an interprofessional collaborative practice site for health sciences students. The clinic will be located at 24th and Cuming streets, adjacent to campus.
CIPER is training team-based care clinicians to deliver high-quality care and to teach students how to perform on a health care team. CIPER also earned a grant from the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education to partner with Creighton’s Werner Institute, renowned for conflict resolution education, to train an interprofessional team led by nurse practitioners at University Campus.
CHI Health partnered with CIPER to receive a $1.1 million grant to support Community Link, which trains students to help connect underserved patients to social resources that improve their access to health care. CIPER is developing training and recruiting students for this effort.
