Linking Interprofessional Networks for Collaboration, Associate Professor, School of Nursing - The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
This program is designed to help teams of faculty members and administrators from a university to work together to create a practical plan for the implementation of interprofessional practice and education. Expert faculty will lead discussions and activities to highlight well-published practices from around the world designed to ensure high quality interprofessional practices. This information will be foundational to team-based activities that will occur throughout the workshop. Sessions will discuss all elements of interprofessional education with a focus on theoretical underpinnings as well as using practical approaches when designing IPE curriculum. Participating institutions will be invited to prepare posters to share successes of one or more of their interprofessional programs they implemented.
Individual teams will also have the opportunity to meet with expert faculty on the last (optional) day of the workshop to discuss specific issues related to your home institution.
Team times will be utilized throughout the workshop and will be facilitated by the workshop presenters. A mix of unstructured time to discuss ideas with colleagues, along with structured activities will allow participants to apply information gained from each session. Team times are designed to allow participants to create a practical plan for implementation of IPE at their home institution.
(* all schools attending the workshop will be invited to display a poster about IPE at their institution; more details to follow)
Title: IPE 101: Setting the Stage for Interprofessional Practice and Education (IPE)
Speaker: Joe Zorek
This session will serve as an introduction to the field of IPE, including historical and contemporary developments that have placed an emphasis on preparing health professions students for interprofessional teamwork. Participants will explore seminal reports, review consensus terminology, and discuss facilitators and barriers to IPE. The movement towards programmatic approaches to IPE will be highlighted.
Title: Curriculum and Instructional Design for IPE
Speaker: Sarah Shrader
During this session, presenters and participants will discuss key concepts for instructional design of IPE activities and development of an IPE curriculum. Highlights will include theoretical underpinnings as well as using practical approaches when designing IPE curriculum. General concepts from the literature for developing IPE activities and descriptions of a variety of innovative teaching strategies to support interprofessional learning outcomes will be presented and applied.
During this session, students from Pharmacy, Medicine and Nursing will present a real case they worked on as a team as part of their "learning together for working together" program. Students will tell the story and work up the case together. The audience will use a sample rubric to evaluate the interprofessional education domains including teamwork, interprofessional communication, patient centeredness and role clarity. The session will provide a good platform for workshop presenters to comment and allow for audience questions and interaction.
Title: IPE Instructional Skills: Facilitating and Debriefing for IPE
Speaker: Sarah Shrader
During this session, presenters will describe key instructional skills including small group facilitation and debriefing that are focused on interprofessional collaboration. These instructional skills are commonly used in the instructional design of IPE activities. General concepts from the literature and best practices based on experience will be presented and applied during this session. Using these concepts for faculty development at participants’ home institutions will also be discussed.
Title: Assessment and Evaluation Design for IPE
Speaker: Joe Zorek
This session will provide an overview of IPE assessment and evaluation, including an introduction to evidence-based methodologies. Resources to support design of assessment strategies and evaluation plans will be reviewed. Participants will explore case studies highlighting application of IPE measurement instruments to different types of IPE activities, followed by examples of programmatic evaluation of IPE for quality improvement purposes.
Speakers will be available on this day to provide participants the opportunity to discuss specific needs and questions with speakers Sarah Shrader and Joe Zorek. A sign-up sheet will be available Monday for you to select a time to meet with one or both of them.
