Saint Louis University (SLU) integrated IPE learning into baccalaureate Nursing and Health Sciences programs in 2006 as a

Concentration in IP Practice, and Minor in IP Practice in 2011. SLU IPE has consistently focused on IPP to advance the Triple Aim,

and now the Quadruple Aim. This initiative expands the professions, faculty, learners and community partners involved to address

big-topic issues in our community, regionally, and nationally. SLU has recently approved a new Core Curriculum framework. To

enhance sustainability of IPE programs at the undergraduate level, this committee of four faculty, representing the four health

professions colleges, were charged with developing a new model for integrating IPE into the University Core Curriculum. This

required new engagement as a team, with college deans (medicine, nursing, health sciences and public health/social work), the

Director of the Core, and Core Curriculum Committee Members. Our committee maintained a professional development and

leadership development approach throughout this process. Participants attending this session will learn how IPE integrates IP learning

across the University to improve better care, better value, and better education of collaboration-ready leaders addressing community

priority needs. We will outline the process of the IPE-Core Integration as we strengthened teamwork process and outcomes of shared

goals, clear roles, mutual trust, effective communication, and measurable outcomes. The result is a broader vision of IPCP and

Effective Teamwork to engage interests and needs of professions outside of healthcare. We built upon the strengths of wellestablished

IPE programs, utilized the IOM framework for IPE/CP, and mapped IPEC Core Competencies with SLU Learning

Outcomes. We will discuss new shared-learning experience outcomes as well as a three-tier IPP program that retains the IP

Concentration and Minor, now open to more students. Finally, we will share next steps that may enable IPCP to become a hallmark of

all SLU graduates.
