Alignment with National Standards

As University of Minnesota’s interprofessional education initiative, 1Health operates in partnership with National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education, implementing strategies to achieve the Triple Aim and meet the health care needs of Minnesota communities.

IPEC Core Competencies

The 1Health curriculum has formally adopted the Interprofessional Education and Practice Competencies developed in 2011 by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC), consisting of six professional associations.  These competencies align closely with the 1Health framework and curriculum. Since the publication of the IPEC competencies, these competencies have been integrated into the accreditation standards of six professions. 

The IPEC core competencies are:

  • Values and ethics for interprofessional collaboration
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Interprofessional communication
  • Interprofessional teamwork and team-based care
