St. Kate’s Interprofessional summit, “Design Thinking for People Centered Care,” on Wednesday, April 27, will feature a noontime book-signing event.

Summit attendees and friends of St. Kate's will celebrate the publication of Interprofessional Evidence-Based Practice, co-edited and co-authored by Penny Moyers, dean of the Henrietta Schmoll School of Health, and Patty Finch-Guthrie, assistant professor and director of Interprofessional Education.

The IPE Summit will feature national leaders from leading healthcare organizations. Duke University’s Peter Ubel, MD, (and native Minnesotan) will discuss why understanding human nature is the key to healthier lives and improving societies. Lorna Ross from the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation will discuss the discovery and implementation of transformative, people-centered care models, while Dr. Lisa de Saxe Zerden from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will discuss integrated care from the social worker’s perspective.

In addition, summit breakout talks and poster sessions will share innovations and best practices across interprofessional healthcare education from multiple disciplines. Continuing education credits are available. Learn more at the IPE Summit site.
