7Mission of IPE at LIUTo provide students, faculty, administrators, and staff at LIU with opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors needed to provide interprofessional care and services in a variety of settings in accordance with the University’s mission, vision, and goals.
8Mission of the IPE Task Force To recommend a strategic approach to interprofessional education (IPE) at LIU that is cost and resource-efficient, and is aligned with outcomes delineated by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) and other relevant national organizations. The Task Force also will recommend an assessment strategy to ensure that students are able to demonstrate achievement of core competencies and are able to function constructively and collaboratively within interprofessional teams in order toimprove health outcomes.

10Faculty DevelopmentFaculty DevelopmentDidacticClinicalAdjunctPlanning and developing an IPE course can be different in many ways from a course offered to only one profession. IPE can take a considerable amount of resources and time, reportedly requiring 3 times the preparation of a traditional course. To optimize the potential for a successful IPE initiative, the faculty members involved need initial preparation and continual development in this area.2 Historically, faculty members have not been trained to teach before being hired as educators; instead, they teach in ways similar to how they were taught, learn on the job, and/or grow through faculty development programs.
