Nexus Summit 2017: Provocative Ideas for Practical IPE
About Nexus Summit 2017
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural summit, the National Center team is excited to host Nexus Summit 2017: Provocative Ideas for Practical IPE. We are bringing together a community focused on advancing interprofessional team-based practice and education across multiple sectors within the United States. Together we will explore emerging ideas, apply practical skills and learn from role models – with a goal of affirming and advancing our collective commitment to interprofessional approaches to practice and education.
In the Nexus, we’re bridging the gap between how current and future health professionals create people-centered and outcomes focused teams to learn together and develop real-world skills. We’ve heard from you throughout the year and are building your ideas into the 2017 Nexus Summit program. You will see a special focus on:
- Affirming and advancing the commitment to teams: In a changing landscape, we are affirming our commitment to interprofessional practice and education together.
- Resiliency and well-being: Our work together is vibrant and often challenging. We know that supporting the resiliency and well-being of teams is essential. It benefits not only the individual members of those teams – but those who are served by and engaged on the team.
- Engaging leaders in IPE: Bring your leadership team because we know their engagement is a critical success factor in shaping and supporting IPE – this was one of the Center’s earliest findings.
Nexus Summit 2017 is designed to provide an environment that fosters skill development, cultivates community and generates ideas that will advance interprofessional practice and education in your own environment while contributing to the national dialogue.
Interprofessional Continuing Education
This activity is being planned and implemented by the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education and the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative (AIHC). The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

Review criteria for abstract submission
Review presenter expectations
The presenting author/s must register and attend Nexus Summit 2017. Presenters are responsible for their own travel, accommodations and conference registration fees. If a presentation is selected, audio or video recordings may be made of the presentation. Your submission of an abstract constitutes your agreement that recording can be made and distributed. All correspondence (primarily through email) will be sent to submitting authors. Final versions of all accepted presentation materials (workshops, Nexus Fair and posters) are expected to be submitted in PDF format for inclusion in the post-conference online resource archive.
Presenters will be asked to identify any potential conflict of interest related to the content to be offered (e.g., commercial interest, affiliation with a vendor, and/or receipt of royalties) and affirm that their abstract presentations will not be used to sell a particular product or service.
