The Health Resources and Services Administration, also known as HRSA, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that's generally responsible for improving access to health care services for people who are uninsured, isolated or medically vulnerable.
The grants and programs of the HRSA are all designed to contribute to the realization of its main agency mission which is to "improve health and achieve health equity through access to quality services, a skilled health workforce and innovative programs."
With this, the Health Resources and Services Administration has recently announced the establishment of the Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention (NEPQR) Program - Interprofessional Collaborative Practice.
The primary goal of the program is to solicit applications from organizations who are willing to enter into a three-year cooperative agreement proposing innovations in Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP).
Interprofessional Collaborative Practice setups are comprised of high-functioning diverse professionals with a collective identity who collaborate and communicate effectively to increase access to care and achieve high quality patient and population-centered outcomes.
IPCP is usually found on setups where health workers from different professional backgrounds join with patients, their families, caregivers and communities to deliver comprehensive high quality of care across settings.
