Interprofessional Education

The School of Pharmacy is at the center of the Interprofessional Education (IPE) program at the Lebanese American University (LAU). Members of the School faculty serve on the LAU IPE workgroup which includes in its learning steps students and practitioners from the University health and social science programs (Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing; Nutrition, Social Work).

IPE sessions have included subjects on conflict management, patient safety, communication, compliance, ethics in clinical practice, health promotion, and evidence-based medicine. An IPE conference on “Advancing Patient Care Through Interprofessional Collaboration” was held at LAU on April 15-16, 2016. The conference invited renowned international speakers on IPE, and gathered professionals from different health and social science disciplines who engaged in team simulation workshops.
