Throughout the Consortium’s 2018 First Annual Conference, we heard about emerging best practices in postgraduate NP training, interprofessional training and practice, and the national landscape for workforce development. There were collegial breakouts on curriculum, evaluation, mentorship, on creating and sharing evidence, and on being a program director. As we work to create the learning environments we need, we are weaving the fabric of excellence. A common thread in our community is sharing – connectedness.
And it’s in the air. In April, the Macy Foundation sponsored a conference on Improving Environments for Learning in the Health Professions. Representatives from all the health professions, educators, practitioners, administrators and researchers convened to identify and disseminate best practices through “actionable recommendations” focused on improving learning. They identified current state research and practice in health professionals’ education, and developed actions to improve that education.
