Developing the business case for interprofessional collaboration between health professions schools and health systems

This project will describe the business case for interprofessional education and collaborative practice from the perspectives of both higher education leadership in academic health professional schools and practice-system leadership in hospitals and large delivery systems. The project team will use the business-case methodology developed by Harvard Business School to describe the business case. The team will widely disseminated the deliverables, including publications in professional journals and a report for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation website, to key stakeholders in education, practice and policy to advance the interprofessional education and practice agenda in the United States.
