Dora A Mills, MD, MPH, FAAP, vice president for Clinical Affairs and Karen T Pardue, PhD, RN, ANEF, associate dean in the Westbrook College of Health Professions, presented an invited breakout session on April 2 at the Maine 2014 Quality Counts conference in Augusta, Maine.

Their presentation: “Learning to Practice Together: The Benefits of Interprofessional Collaborative Practice,” explores the paradigm of interprofessional education (IPE) and practice and how this pedagogy informs a more relationship-centered approach to health care delivery.

Mills and Pardue highlighted examples of interprofessional education and practice that are occurring at UNE and promoted the University’s upcoming May summit on inter professional practice.

Quality Counts is Maine’s largest health care conference, with over 750 health leaders from across the state in attendance and presentations from an impressive group of national leaders.
