Advancing Interprofessional Clinical Prevention and
Population Health Education: Curriculum Development Guide for Health
APTR has developed a Curriculum Guide for Health Professions Faculty to prepare students to participate effectively as members of
interprofessional health care teams delivering clinical prevention and
population health services.
The guide is adaptable and customizable to the
specific learning environments and health professions education programs of an
institution. This curriculum guide is intended for faculty members
in health professions education programs seeking to design and implement
interprofessional learning activities in the area of clinical prevention and
population health. The
current national focus on interprofessional education and collaborative
practice is conducive to the education of future health professionals in
disease prevention and population health and can facilitate the achievement of
the nation’s health goals outlined in Healthy People 2020.
This guide is a project of the APTR Healthy People Curriculum Task Force. Member
associations are: American Association of Colleges of Nursing, American
Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, American Association of
Colleges of Pharmacy, American Dental Education Association, Association of
American Medical Colleges, Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions,
National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties, and Physician Assistant
Education Association. Community-Campus Partnerships for Health and Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health serve as resource organizations to the Task Force.
