Phase 1: Training will begin in July with preliminary testing and completion of NIH requirements. Teams will meet and begin to define what they hope to accomplish. Webinars, online modules, institutional assessments and team meetings will prepare the teams for the workshop as they continue to develop their project. Phase 2: Teams will attend a 2.5-day workshop to develop skills, design their curriculum and develop their project. Phase 3: After the workshop, feedback and process evaluation will occur. Each team will continue to meet and during conference calls discuss progress with their liaison in refining and implementing their project.

- I understand that my faculty team will be trained in the creation of an IPE curriculum. What types of learners should my curriculum be targeting?Your curriculum may target pre- and post- licensure learners (students, residents, and/or fellows) in fields including but not limited to nursing, pharmacy, medicine, psychology, social work, and chaplaincy.
- All training costs including the train-the-trainer workshop (airfare up to $550, hotel and most meals) are covered by this grant from the National Cancer Institute. As applicants, the participating faculty need the endorsement of their administration to participate in the iPEX training program. The applying institution would cover any costs associated with implementation of an interprofessional oncology and /or palliative care educational initiative. A budget is not necessary.
- Will travel expenses such as luggage fees, airport parking, ground transportation at originating airport and meals on travel days be covered?Only airfare (up to $550) will be covered.
- No CEU’s are not available for this training. Due to the interdisciplinary nature and the many professional licenses represented, it would be time and cost prohibitive for our grant budget.
