The goal of the MWAETC IPE program is to build HIV workforce capacity by increasing the numbers of new graduates from Schools of Nursing, Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry and Behavioral Health Programs with the skills to contribute to interdisciplinary care teams and the desire to enter the HIV care workforce. Ultimately, an expanded, prepared workforce will lead to expanded access to HIV care and improved outcomes along the HIV care continuum.
The MWAETC’s IPE Project is based at the University of Colorado College of Nursing (CU Nursing) and provides training and curriculum support to faculty of health professions schools and behavioral health graduate programs.
The MWAETC also facilitates interprofessional practicum experiences with a hands-on, team-based learning approach.
The IPE program affects change for students, faculty, and health professional programs through the use of best practices for training, student enrichment, and faculty mentoring.
IPE Project trainers consult with faculty about teaching needs and gaps, and support curriculum development to address identified needs. They use best practices, including the National HIV Curriculum.
Faculty are mentored on aspects of HIV care relevant to their work, such as prevention, chronic care, substance use, rurality, or vulnerable groups.
