The framework of the program considers three inter-related dimensions of leading: self, teams & systems.
The program will draw upon leadership models, self, team and organizational development best practices, and the interprofessional collaboration competencies from the 2016 Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) as frameworks for selection of topics and active learning experiences.
The four competency domains of IPEC provide a foundation for development and achievement of program deliverables within the context of collaborative, team-based approaches to shared decision making and organizational effectiveness.
