On November 29, the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation (TG&WHF) hosted a celebration of the opening of the George and Andrea Kalmar Centre for Interprofessional Education. Held at TWH, the event paid tribute to the ongoing support of George and Andrea Kalmar in the planning, renovation and completion of the groundbreaking new centre.
Interprofessional Education (IPE) is an integral part of the learning continuum for students and health care providers seeking to improve patient-centred care, quality of work-life and quality of care. Long identified as a leading strategy in transforming health care practice, IPE enables UHN to better meet the needs of patients and their families.
As a cornerstone of the IPE Program at UHN, the new 2,000 square foot Kalmar Centre will bring together experts in health care education to investigate best practices in IPE, driving system-wide change to make interprofessional care a reality.
At the opening, Tennys Hanson, President and CEO, TG&WHF, welcomed the Kalmars to the Partners for Discovery – a group of donors who have made cumulative gifts and/or pledges of $1 million or more. A storyboard was also unveiled celebrating the Kalmar family's philanthropy; it's now located in the Centre's front lobby.
Celebrations continued with a presentation of the Awards of Merit for Excellence in Interprofessional Education (IPE). Established in 2009 to recognize excellence in our IPE community, the awards were presented by Maria Tassone, Director of the Centre.
