Getting a Seat at the Table: Librarian Involvement in Interprofessional Education Activities (IPE)

Class Details

Presenter: Shelly Warwick, MLS, PH.D. is an Associate Professor at the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Touro College of Pharmacy and Director of Library and Information Services. Shelly has served on the board of the NY/NJ MLA Chapter and as a member of the national board member of the Association for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T) and as an NN/LM MAR grant reviewer. Her research areas are intellectual property, privacy and health literacy.

Librarians and libraries are often the one resource that understands the scope of the various health fields and serves each with the same respect. With the mandate by major health science accrediting agencies to incorporate IPE into professional training programs it would be natural to have a librarian involved in that process. But making this happen isn’t simple. This presentation will include an overview of IPE and suggestions on how librarians can become involved, as well as a case study of how one librarian got a seat at the IPE table.
