Webinar Description

Hosted by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC)

The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) is proud to announce the fifth event in our 2018 IPEC Webinar Series aimed at highlighting trends and activities in interprofessional education (IPE) and practice.
Deaths related to drug overdose are an urgent public health problem in the United States. Data from the most recent National Vital Statistics System indicates that an average of 115 Americans die each day from opioid misuse. Interprofessional engagement and education can help optimize patient care related to preventing opioid abuse. Panelists will share remarks on how to design and implement collaborative approaches in response to the opioid epidemic.
Health professions faculty, students, and clinicians will discover best practices that they can use to assist with IPE and wellness efforts at their home institutions.


  • Describe interprofessional approaches at the University of Buffalo and University of Pittsburgh that prepare students to address the opioid epidemic
  • Identify opportunities and resources related to opioid prevention and treatment for interprofessional education and collaborative practice
  • Analyze the lessons learned in the prevention and treatment of opioid abuse for future application
