NBCC-I Attends IOM Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education

In early May 2014, NBCC and NBCC-I staff members attended the Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education, held by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, in Washington, DC.

This was the first time the forum included the topic of mental health. The workshop “Scaling Up Best Practices in Community-Based Health Professional Education” addressed the growing need for community-based approaches emphasizing interprofessional efforts to aid in improving health care for individuals and populations. In this workshop, NBCC’s director of professional development, Dr. Scott Hinkle, and NBCC-I’s vice presidents, Dr. Andreea Szilagyi and Dr. Wendi Schweiger, presented on the Mental Health Facilitator (MHF) program.
