Publications Educating Nurses and Physicians: Toward New Horizons

In June 2010, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation and The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching hosted a workshop/conference in Palo Alto, CA to advance new models for inter-professional education within the nation’s academic health centers. The two foundations believe that if nursing, medical, and other health professions students learn jointly in clinical settings, as graduates they will improve patient outcomes by working more collaboratively, communicating better with each other, and fostering a health care delivery system that assures quality and patient safety.
