About Us

Education to Practice (E2P) is a clinical practice consulting service offered by the Michigan Health Council—a nonprofit organization near Lansing, Michigan. Our mission is to decrease everyone’s interprofessional collaboration learning curve so they can achieve the Triple Aim plus improve the work life of clinicians and staff. Check out our experience helping partners achieve this Quadruple Aim.
What is interprofessional collaboration? A process for communication and decision making that enables the separate and shared knowledge and skills of different care providers to synergistically influence the care provided through changed attitudes and behaviors, all the while emphasizing person-centered goals and values (Health Canada, 2010).
To learn more about interprofessional collaboration in general, we recommend the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education.
Our Experience:
WHAT? HOW? WHY?
