Developing and sharing knowledge and resources to transform healthcare.

As a leader in interprofessionalism, Rosalind Franklin University’s goal is to disseminate interprofessional research that will transform the national healthcare system..

The University’s focus on an interprofessional, team-based approach to quality patient- centered care is driven by a commitment to improving patient outcomes and reducing medical errors. The research conducted within the Institute and University compliments the Rosalind Franklin University’s commitment to rigorous inquiry, discovery, and the advancement of knowledge.

Research and scholarship goals at the Institute include opportunities to:

  • Promote Interprofessional research and scholarship activities throughout the University
  • Identify research grant funding opportunities for IP research and scholarship
  • Develop and implement tools for assessing IP competencies
  • Develop and implement quality improvement procedures for IP activities at the University and clinical sites
  • Increase the number of IP collaborative research and scholarship activities each year
  • Increase the number of IP presentations given by University personnel each year
  • Serve as a national resource for IP research
  • Disseminate research findings through peer-reviewed healthcare publications.

To highlight interprofessional research and scholarship conducted by faculty and research staff working within the three centers for excellence housed within The Dewitt C. Baldwin Institute for Interprofessional Education, a selection of publications and presentations are updated and rotated quarterly.
