OHSU School of Nursing (SON), in collaboration with the School of Medicine (SOM) and the Global Health Center (GHC), has been awarded funding for the Interprofessional Care Access Network (I-CAN). The purpose is to create a collaborative model for clinical practice and education that enhances health care experiences, improves population health outcomes, and reduces health care costs for disadvantaged and underserved patients, families, and populations in established partner neighborhoods. This innovative project will expand partnerships with community health agencies to create Neighborhood Centers for Academic and Practice Partnerships (NCAPP) with a Nurse Faculty in Residence (FIR) working with students and agency staff to address population health. The Interprofessional Community Health and Education Exchange (iCHEE) will provide health screening services for the NCAPPs and interprofessional education. The FIR will facilitate referrals to partner primary care homes in the neighborhood for collaborative case management.
