Qualifies under SAM 1.1.1. and 1.3.1. and 1.3.2. Project Scope, Goals, and Objectives: The primary purpose of this grant application is to expand and develop new clinical/practicum training sites via sustainable academic-clinical partnerships (ACPs) for master level social workers (MSW) to help address health disparities related to mental health to serve residents and rural communities in El Paso, Hudspeth, and Culberson counties in West Texas. Understanding the potential role of interprofessional education (IPE) approaches to caring for patients and families with mental health, disability, and multiple medications, three UTEP allied health disciplines (Social Work (SW), Physical Therapy (PT), and Pharmacy (Pharm)) will work in partnership with the ACPs to expand IPE experiences in underserved populations as well as facilitate a career pathway for clinicians and practitioners to pursue academic appointments. (Project has IRB approvals, evaluation component, and literary reviews for publications).
