THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES

Advisers to the Nation on Science, Engineering, and Medicine

The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone is president of the National Academy of Sciences.

The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964, under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievements of engineers. Dr. C. D. Mote, Jr., is president of the National Academy of Engineering.

The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Victor J. Dzau is president of the Institute of Medicine.

The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy’s purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone and Dr. C. D. Mote, Jr., are chair and vice chair, respectively, of the National Research Council.

Acknowledgments

Two landmark reports set in motion the idea for establishing a global forum to provide a neutral platform for ongoing dialogue among health professionals that could be the catalyst for needed reforms in health and educational systems around the world. Both of these reports—Health Professionals for a New Century (Frenk et al., 2010) and The Future of Nursing (IOM, 2011)—emphasized the importance of community-based health professional education. The Lancet Commission report described curricular innovations from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s that broadened “the continuum from classroom to clinical training through earlier student exposure to patients and an expansion of training sites from hospitals to communities” (p. 20). Likewise, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Committee on the Future of Nursing explained that “an improved education system is necessary to ensure that the current and future generations of nurses can deliver safe, quality, patient-centered care across all settings, especially in such areas as primary care and community and public health” (p. 6).

These reports laid the foundation for the establishment of our IOM Global Forum and further confirmed for us the immense importance of learning from and with communities. It was therefore our great delight when the members of our Global Forum voted to host a workshop on this topic of community-based health professional education. Through the keen insight of the workshop planning committee, a robust agenda was developed and carried out. We thank the workshop planning committee co-chairs, Warren Newton and Susan Scrimshaw, for their leadership in this endeavor, and we thank the planning committee members, Virginia Adams, Gillian Barclay, Kathryn Kolasa, Donna Meyer, and Stephen Shannon, for

their support throughout the workshop. We also thank the consultant to the committee, Marietjie de Villiers. Such a wonderful event could not have happened without the keen dedication of the IOM staff of the Global Forum, including Patricia Cuff, forum director; Megan Perez, research associate; and Samantha Brown, senior program assistant. A special thank you goes to Patrick Kelley for envisioning and establishing the Global Forum. And most important, we must acknowledge our deep appreciation to the 45 sponsors and 61 members of the Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education that make it possible for us to host events like the workshop described in this report.

There is growing evidence from developed and developing countries that community-based approaches are effective in improving the health of individuals and populations. This is especially true when the social determinants of health are considered in the design of the community-based approach. With an aging population and an emphasis on health promotion, the United States is increasingly focusing on community-based health and health care. Preventing disease and promoting health calls for a holistic approach to health interventions that rely more heavily upon interprofessional collaborations. However, the financial and structural design of health professional education remains siloed and largely focused on academic health centers for training. Despite these challenges, there are good examples of interprofessional, community-based programs and curricula for educating health professionals.

In May 2014, members of the Institute of Medicine's Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education came together to substantively delve into issues affecting the scale-up and spread of health professional education in communities. Participants heard a wide variety of individual accounts from innovators about work they are undertaking and opportunities for education with communities. In presenting a variety of examples that range from student community service to computer modeling, the workshop aimed to stimulate discussions about how educators might better integrate education with practice in communities. Building Health Workforce Capacity Through Community-Based Health Professional Education summarizes the presentations and discussion of this event.
