This presentation will highlight how an Interprofessional Education, Collaboration and Service (IPECS) committee can be your driving and sustaining force on the journey to team based care and interprofessional education. Strategies to create and sustain an IPECS committee will be discussed. Additionally, specific interventions implemented by a OB/GYN IPECS committee will be outlined that promote a shift from a soloist health care culture to a team based culture.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to describe the process for creating an IPECS committee, discuss application of Kotter’s Change Theory to IPECS committee activities and apply interprofessional activities discussed to their organization.
