Are you part of a dynamic duo? A terrific trio? Fantastic foursome? If you and your work-bestie(s) from another discipline leap tall buildings together, we want to hear from you!

Maybe you just want to learn more about interprofessional (IP) collaboration and how it is different from interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary care. Or, perhaps you’re curious about how to optimize teamwork to achieve better outcomes across settings. We want to hear from you!

IPECP is a new taskforce with a goal to establish and maintain relationships with other organizations within Illinois representing the many providers we collaborate with in providing SLP and AuD services to clients and their families. Ultimately, our goal is to build upon these relationships to provide educational content across the professions related to IP care. 

We can’t do it alone. Research says IP care is best. Consider joining us and shaping the path for this new initiative.
