Hospital Interprofessional Focus

The Hospital Practice Seminar (HPS) is a continuing education event that will focus on providing patient-centered care within a hospital setting, by applying team-based treatment approaches.   The seminar will provide interprofessional continuing education for a variety of healthcare professionals who practice in hospitals, to encourage effective collaboration and to improve health outcomes in hospital practice.  In addition to interprofessional learning, the seminar will also include breakout sessions for the individual healthcare professions to dive deeper into topics/issues that affect their specific professional practice.  By including both team-based and profession-specific learning opportunities, the HPS offers a practical educational opportunity that is highly relevant to contemporary hospital practice.  The event will offer tracks for Pharmacists, Nurses, Physicians and PA’s, and Social Workers.
