IP Collaborative Scholarship Part I: Fundamentals and a Framework for Collaborations

Monday, October 18, 2021, 9:00 am - 10:00 am CDT

We are all working hard, both individually and collectively, to improve interprofessional practice and education. However, despite best efforts, progress is slow, and outcomes remain variable. Collaborative scholarship provides opportunities to widen access to a greater number of techniques used for research and more efficient learning, brings more experience to bear upon a problem/issue, and promotes creativity and effective problem-solving.

This session is an introduction to IPECP collaborative scholarship and will emphasize enablers of IPECP collaborative scholarship, provide an orientation to an implementation science framework for collaborative research, present an opportunity to initiate planning a collaborative research project, and outline the steps needed to strengthen professional development and potential career advancement.


After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the steps in collaborative scholarship
  2. Describe an implementation science framework to develop collaborative scholarship in IPECP
  3. Identify and discuss research gaps that could be addressed through collaborative IPECP scholarship


Active Learning Strategies:

Following an introduction to collaborative scholarship and potential models, participants will complete a template based on the implementation science framework focused on identification of a problem, ideal collaborators, and potential design and implementation strategies. Each participant will record their identified research problem and gaps and their strategies to seek collaborative scholarship opportunities. Attendees are encouraged to also attend the follow up Nexus Summit session titled, IP Collaborative Scholarship Part II: Looking for Collaborators in All the Right Places, to gain experience designing a scholarship project with potential collaborators in attendance at the Summit.



Participants will name 2 enablers and 2 distractors of collaborative scholarship, use the implementation science framework to identify a problem for further research, ideal collaborators, and begin to consider a plan for design and implementation, and identify 2 to 3 steps they can take to advance and support collaborative scholarship.
