  • Maine Nursing Preceptor Education Program—To support nursing leadership, Lunder-Dineen developed and launched the Maine Nursing Preceptor Education Program.  Since the program launched in 2015, more than 300 nurses, from over 50 organizations in Maine have completed the program.  The program is launching again statewide in the spring of 2017, with an anticipated enrollment of an additional 200 nurses.  
  • MOTIVATE—The oral health education program, MOTIVATE, incorporated 21st century best practices to design, develop and launch a pilot interprofessional education and collaborative practice program to address the oral health needs of veterans residing in long term care settings.  It is anticipated this program model can serve as a prototype for oral health education, in long term care settings nationwide.
  • Time to Ask—The unhealthy alcohol use initiative is well positioned to pilot a program designed to guide primary care practices in incorporating a model for interprofessional education and practice, to transform patient conversations and care.

"Our work centers on the pressing health education needs that are likely to impact you, your family and your neighbors. I invite you to join us and mold the future of health care across our state."
