Interprofessional Education (IPE) and Interprofessional Care (IPC) Seed Grant Announcement
The Center for Interprofessional Education at UMB is pleased to announce an opportunity for $5,000 to $15,000 seed grants for 13-month IPE and IPC pilot projects.
- Proposals should be practice- or classroom-focused, with educational and evaluative components employing the IPEC Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice.
- Grant funds may not be used toward salary or benefit support.
The following definitions of IPE/IPC should be used when developing proposals:
Interprofessional education: “When students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.” (World Health Organization, 2010)
Interprofessional team-based care: Care delivered by intentionally created, usually relatively small, work groups in health care, who are recognized by others as well as by themselves as having a collective identity and shared responsibility for a patient or group of patients.
The proposal should be limited to five single-spaced pages and should include the following:
- Title of project
- Description of new initiative, or if existing, how the existing initiative will be significantly expanded or enhanced
- Description of how the project will advance UMB’s efforts to meet IPEC competencies
- Abstract (approximately four-sentence description)
- Roles and responsibilities
- List of faculty on seed grant to include name, credentials, school affiliation, and title. Submission of names confirms that the faculty/staff members are aware of the proposal and support the proposed activities.
- Outline of educational curriculum to be used
- Plan for evaluation of project
- Plan for sustainability following the pilot period
- Statement of support from faculty supervisor/division, chief associate dean, or responsible administrative official granting the faculty member the projected time to implement the proposed project
- Implementation timeline
- Budget and justification
The project proposal must meet two criteria:
- It must seek to engage students and/or trainees in at least one of the following areas:
- Work with individuals of other professionals to maintain a climate of mutal respect and shared values.
- Use the knowledge of one’s own role and those of other professionals to appropriately access and address the health care needs of the patients and populations served.
- Communicate with patients, families, communities, and other health professionals in a responsive and responsible manner that supports a team approach to the maintenance of health and treatment of disease.
- Apply relationship-building values and the principles of team dynamics to perform effectively in different team roles to plan and deliver patient-/population-centered care that is safe, timely, efficient, effective, and equitable.
- Proposals must include faculty from at least two or more disciplines, with at least one faculty affiliated with UMB.
