The "sweet spot" is where different health professionals and students come together, recognize common ground, and strategically work together to address patient care needs. The sweet spot uses interprofessional education (IPE) and simulation experiences to advance all practices. This provides students the opportunity to practice realistic clinical scenarios in a safe, controlled environment, while also allowing them to foster partnerships and communicate openly with other health professionals--the "sweet spot." Speakers include health professionals who incorporate a holistic approach with clients that includes nutrition education alongside physical therapy services will discuss strategies of empowering the use of nutrition in the practice of other health professions. Additionally, speakers experienced with incorporating the use of a Simulation Environment Teaching Hospital and telehealth in dietetic interns' experiences will describe how IPE and simulation can assist the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) programs to incorporate the competencies related to Competency for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (CRDN).
