Patient and Interprofessional Education

Doctor and Patient

ACP’s Patient and Interprofessional Partnership initiative develops patient-centered, interprofessional education resources for internists, patients, and their clinical teams.

This initiative works to promote high quality education that incorporates interprofessional, interdisciplinary and patient perspectives, and that promotes partnership with all members of the healthcare team. Learn more about our approach.

This comprehensive learning series on treating obesity was developed with the input of an advisory group of internal medicine specialists, bariatric surgeons, a nutritionist, a psychologist, a pharmacist, and a patient representative. The series includes three learning modules, two podcasts, and a collection of patient education handouts in both English and Spanish that were created specifically to bolster physician recommendations and support patient success.

Pain Management Learning Hub CME eligible
This learning series contains over 23 hours of self-paced, comprehensive content that was developed with the input of an advisory group of internal medicine specialists, an oncology pharmacist, a nurse practitioner, addiction medicine specialists, physical therapists and patient representatives. This group ensured that patient and interprofessional perspectives were built into the clinical education components for pain assessment, diagnostic differentials, treatment plans, and communication in partnership with patients.
