National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education

The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education is a unique public-private partnership charged by our funders to provide the leadership, evidence and resources needed to guide the nation on the use of interprofessional education and collaborative practice as a way to enhance the experience of health care, improve population health and reduce the overall cost of care. We do this by aligning interprofessional education and collaborative practice (the “new IPE”) with transforming health care delivery. With the help of our partners, we’re opening doors to possibilities and progress, while challenging people to think in new and different ways about health care and how health professionals learn. We offer and support evaluation, research, data and evidence that ignites the field of interprofessional practice and education and leads to better care, added value and healthier communities. We gather, synthesize, aggregate and disseminate information, knowledge and evidence about the effectiveness of interprofessional practice and education on health outcomes and its potential to transform health care and health professions education in the U.S. and beyond. We maintain our role as unbiased, neutral conveners working across many professional boundaries, cultures and experiences. In doing so, we are breaking new ground, inspiring people to join the journey and elevating the contributions of others along the way – providing the leadership, evidence, solutions and support necessary to advance the field.
