Summary:

This monograph is from year four of a project that enabled families, administrators, staff, faculty, and students to work together to address health and education issues faced by children and their families and to prevent more complex problems from developing. In this final report, the Health and Education Collaboration Project focuses on community-based university education as an effective strategy for training new practitioners. It describes family-centered interprofessional collaboration, presents principles of family-centered interprofessional collaboration, and provides background information on the Health and Education Collaboration Project. The next section of the report reviews the implementation of family-centered interprofessional collaboration in the four years of the project. Developmental stages of the project and the lessons learned are then reviewed, including how the project built a shared vision, and engaged in team development, training, evaluation and refinement, and information dissemination. The monograph closes with a discussion of the sustainability of the project, implications for future interprofessional collaboration efforts, and learning examples of family-centered interprofessional collaboration. Appendices include updates of demonstration projects, a summary of training on family-centered interprofessional collaboration, a summary of a interdisciplinary seminar on team building in interprofessional education, and lessons learned in family-centered interprofessional collaboration. (Contains 30 references.)
