for Better Health IPE Kick-Off Event
The Center for Health Sciences Interprofessional Education, Research, and Practice (CHSIE) Steering Committee hosted the Collaborating for Better Health IPE Kick-Off Event on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at the UW Waterfront Activities Center. Nearly 100 faculty, clinicians, students, and staff from twenty disciplines across the UW campus came to learn more about CHSIE and upcoming IPE initiatives at the UW. With additional funding from the Board of Health Sciences, CHSIE is expanding its focus to new areas. The new steering committee is composed of faculty representatives from each of the six UW health science schools: dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, and social work.

New Article from UW Professor Sara Kim Discusses Healthcare Conflict
In a new article, “Individual, interpersonal, and organizational factors of healthcare conflict: A scoping review" published in the Journal of Interprofessional Care, Dr. Sara Kim and her co-authors discuss how the current literature reports the sources and consequences of conflicts among healthcare professionals. They report that disrespect, lack of support, weak team collaboration, ambiguity of professional roles, scope of practice, reporting structure and workflows negatively affect job satisfaction and retention. According to the article, “individual conflict sources included personal traits, such as self-focus, self-esteem, or worldview, as well as individuals’ conflict management styles. These conflicts posed threats to one’s physical, mental, and emotional health and to one’s ability to perform at work.” To read our full article, click here.

The University of Washington hosted a 3.5-day workshop from January 23–26 as part of the national Train-the-Trainer (T3) Interprofessional Faculty Development Program (T3-IFDP) funded by a grant from the Josiah Macy Jr Foundation. The T3 Interprofessional Faculty Development Training Program is designed specifically for clinical educators and health professional faculty to enhance their leadership skills and capabilities to lead and further IP efforts in their organizations. Interprofessional teams apply to participate at one of three national training sites—the University of Washington, the University of Virginia and the University of Missouri—through the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (NCIPE). Four teams (22 total participants) attended from Johns Hopkins University, the Yakima Valley Interprofessional Practice and Education Collaborative, Texas A&M and the University of Washington RIDE Program. Each team was comprised of participants from two or more different health professions, and together over the three and a half days worked on planning or refining a pre-identified interprofessional team project. Teams receive follow-up coaching and resources from T3 trainers for one year beyond their initial training.
