Team-Based Learning Initiative
RhPAP’s Team-Based Learning Initiative is an umbrella program which supports opportunities and initiatives that offer relevant, applicable training to health-care teams, right in the team’s facility or community. Through the Team-based Learning Initiative, our intention is to help health professionals enhance not only their individual skills, but their confidence in each other and cohesiveness as a team.
Learning together, in the facility or community in which you work, can lead to a stronger, better coordinated team that provides high-quality care. A well-functioning team can lead to better patient outcomes overall.
This initiative is aimed at all rural health professional teams. Teams may be interdisciplinary or intradisciplinary.
Team-Based Learning Initiative Funding
Team-based Learning Initiative funding has been designed to be flexible in terms of the types of team-based educational or training opportunities that it supports and the diversity of the rural health professionals and health professions teams it supports. All funding decisions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Funding may cover course or training fees, instructor costs, and books or course material costs for team members. Funding may also be available to support other costs such as venue or equipment rentals.
Team-Based Learning Initiative Eligibility Criteria
