The Licensed Independent Practitioner (LIP) collaborative was developed in response to needs identified in the Partners 2016 Needs Assessment and Service Gaps analysis. Its goals are to:

  • Improve communication between Partners and Licensed Independent Practitioners
  • Increase the use of the slot scheduler by Licensed Independent Practitioners to increase service capacity
  • Identify training needs

Identify potential barriers to service and solutions to those barriers
