Title of Work
Developing a framework for interprofessional collaborative practice, cultural fluency, and ecological approaches to health
This paper describes the development of a framework for reducing health disparities inclusive of interprofessional collaborative practice, cultural humility, and ecological approaches to health; the identification of common core competencies for students from various disciplines; and relevant assessment instruments to measure attainment of those competencies. The framework, associated logic model and initiatives, and core competencies were created through an iterative process involving multiple stakeholders. Using the framework as the outcome, a logic model was created to identify short, medium, and long-term activities and outcomes. Faculty were involved in the identification of core competencies and relevant validated assessment instruments. Future work will include mapping competencies across the curricula in a school of health at a liberal arts university and longitudinal assessment of students to evaluate attainment of competencies.
