Inter-professional collaborative practice is an essential component in patient/client care.  When a collaborative team works well together, patients tend to have better health outcomes. Unfortunately, teamwork, respect for other professions, a sense of shared ethical responsibility, and positive professional communication are not interactions that “just happen”.  Most professional training happens in siloes, and thus many professionals step into the field without knowledge or experience with inter-professional collaborative practice competencies.

This workshop will provide an overview of inter-professional collaborative practice and its importance to professionals working in the field of mental health, substance misuse, and other health professions, explore the roles and responsibilities of an inter-professional team, and introduce participants to the competencies for inter-professional collaborative practice developed by the National Center for Inter-professional Collaborative Education and Practice (NEXUS – IPEC). Emphasis will be placed on the ethics and values competency of working on an inter-professional team.

Define inter-professional collaborative practice competencies & skills

Understand the importance of shared ethical responsibility and values among providers when working collaboratively
