Abstract

Interprofessional education encourages collaboration between several student healthcare professionals to provide experiences crucial to their success after graduation. Incorporating interprofessional education into the curriculum can be challenging, however it strengthens students’ skills to work in a team and establishes understanding of roles and responsibilities. An interprofessional course, created by faculty from multiple institutions, effectively taught students through online learning modules as well as hands-on experiences such as simulations and communication activities. Activities included an identification questionnaire, TeamStepps paper chain, ambulatory care simulation, and a poverty simulation day. Throughout this course students learned about their roles, other professionals' roles, the importance of verbal and nonverbal communication, and the impact effective teamwork has on patient care.
