The focus of the Clinical Working Group (CWG) is on identifying and advancing projects in clinical education that foster inter-disciplinary understanding and respect among professions and enhance the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors (KSABs) of individuals involved in integrated clinical settings (clinicians, students, and educators). The ultimate objective of CWG work is integrated and collaborative patient care. Our members are clinician educators, administrators of clinical programs in academic institutions, and clinicians in practice in a variety of integrated settings. The most significant work from September 2009-June 2011 was a collaboration with the Education Working Group relative to developing and then creating materials to support Competencies for Optimal Practice in Integrated Environments.
