Clinical and Inter-Professional Considerations for Patient-Centered Team-Based Care

WNA Fall Learning Symposium & Membership Assembly 2016

WNA’s Task Force on Interprofessional Education is partnering with WNA’s Patient-Centered Team-Based Care Grant staff in planning this day-long conference. The interdisciplinary conference will include an overview of patient-centered team-based care (PCTBC). There will be two concurrent sessions in the afternoon: one will be the clinical application in the identification, treatment, and promotion of patient self-management of patients with hypertension; the second will be the educational considerations related to interprofessional education in a PCTBC setting.
One of the plenary speakers is Brenda Zierler, PhD, RN, FAAN, a professor of Biobehavioral Nursing and Health Systems at the University of Washington.  Dr. Zierler was a contributing member of the Institute of Medicine Report: Measuring the Impact of Interprofessional Education (IPE) on Collaborative Practice and Patient Outcomes.
