Call for Proposals

We invite all practitioners, educators, and leaders who engage in interprofessional practice and/or interprofessional education (IPE) to submit proposals to share their experience, research, and insights at the IPEL Annual Conference. All submissions will be peer-reviewed.

Please use the guidelines based on one of the following applicable categories:

PhDEL Students & Faculty Presentations

Each PhDEL student is required to participate in the conference. This is also a good opportunity to share joint collaborations between faculty and students, or other work related to interprofessional practice.

Proposals should be submitted based on one of the following choices:

  1. A synthesis or topic related to coursework;
  2. A topic of interest related to the student's dissertation;
  3. Your dissertation proposal; or
  4. A topic related to interprofessional education, leadership, or practice.

Please print up your poster or PPT slides and bring them to display during your assigned session. You will be given 10-15 minutes to present your slides and elicit feedback.

Guest Speakers & Panel Discussion

The ongoing theme for the Guest Panel is, "What Does Interprofessional (IP) Practice Look Like in Your Organization? Experiences from the Field." There will be two parts for the session, individual guest speaker presentations followed by a panel discussion.

  1. Individual Presentations: Guest speakers will be given 15-20 minutes to provide an overview of their experience with Interprofessional Practice and/or Education, and to discuss the benefits, burdens, and opportunities for future IP practice in their setting. Please use the submit button below to provide a brief bio-sketch as well as a PowerPoint presentation and any other relevant materials to support your presentation.
  2. IP Panel Discussion: Following the individual presentations, guest speakers will participate in a panel discussion and respond to questions from the audience. Discussion prompts might include: "How would you define Interprofessional Practice?" "What are the emergent common themes across the different experiences that were shared today?" "What are the differences?" "What is the future of Interprofessional practice?" "What are the implications for interprofessional education?"

Submission Deadline

Please submit your materials no later than January 11th, 2019.

Note. If you have not already done so, you will need to create an account with CommonKnowledge to submit your proposal.
