UNE Awarded $200,000 for Cultivating Caring Interprofessional Health Work Force
Date:6/5/2013

Portland, Maine (PRWEB) June 05, 2013

The University of New England has announced the award of a two-year, $200,000 grant by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations in recognition of the University’s efforts to cultivate a caring interprofessional health work force. The award, co-authored by Dr. Shelley Cohen Konrad, Director of the Center for Excellence for Interprofessional Education and Dr. Karen Pardue, Associate Dean of the Westbrook College of Health Profession, serves to continue the development of flexible learning modules designed to be adaptable within curriculum across the health disciplines. The first of these modules introducing students and faculty to interprofessional education was funded by the Bingham Program and will be available to faculty in fall 2013.

The AVDF grant also includes funding to expand academic and community faculty development in caring, collaborative, interprofessional approaches and teaching methods.
