Judi Schack-Dugre, PT, DPT, MBA, EdD, Director of Clinical Education, presented two abstracts in the national interprofessional collaborative conference Nexus Summit 2020 last month. The theme of this year’s conference was Optimizing Interprofessional Clinical Learning Environments: Better Care, Better Value, Better Education. Originally planned as a traditional conference, Nexus Summit was transitioned to a virtual environment. Presentations were prerecorded and a live Q & A synchronous discussion took place at a scheduled time with panel members and conference attendees.
Dr. Schack-Dugre presented as part of an interprofessional and interinstitutional team investigating strategies for studying IPE efforts and outcomes. Interprofessional collaboration is a vital component of the clinical learning environment in which Dr. Schack-Dugre oversees in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program here at UF.
