IPCP is usually found on setups where health workers from different professional backgrounds join with patients, their families, caregivers and communities to deliver comprehensive high quality of care across settings.
In essence, the program aims to support the development of collaborative practice environments that deliver patient and population-centered quality health care that is safe, efficient, effective and equitable.
In addition, the program also seeks to increase the number of skilled nurses in the interprofessional collaborative practice.
It is also within the scope of the program to create and expand practice environments which are comprised of nursing and other professional disciplines engaged in collaborative practice innovations.
To support the initiatives of this program, the HRSA is set to administer funds in the amount of $10,000,000.
