Practical Tips for IPE Faculty Development

The following are a selection of the sessions included in the Faculty/Preceptor Development to Facilitate Interprofessional Learning track, which were lauded by attendees for offering practical tips for implementing IPE faculty development in a variety of settings. Evaluation comments on the live sessions included:

“I plan to use the material in developing IPE faculty workshops.”
“Valuable conversation, idea sharing, and next steps planning. Could have gone another hour with the discussion.”


Communicating About IPE

The ability to craft clear messaging and communicate an IPE partnership or initiative to stakeholders is a critical success factor validated through the National Center’s work across the United States. These two Summit seminars focus on building these critical skills. Evaluation comments noted that:

“This is a powerful experience.”
“[This] provided a foundation for the importance of effective messaging and basics on how to craft effective messaging for IPECP engagement.”


Creating Powerful Virtual IPE Simulations

The COVID-19 pandemic is creating a renewed opportunity to utilize interprofessional simulation in health professions education in the context of virtual learning and telehealth. The excerpted sessions listed below were part of the Interprofessional Curriculum – Simulations track at the Nexus Summit and provide “step by step [models] on how to create a virtual IPE simulation”, according to the session evaluations. Another comment: “this session was well worth the wait.”


Caring for the Team

Another lesson made crystal clear by the COVID-19 pandemic? All members of the health care team require support, resources, and care themselves in order to provide care for others. This rich Lightning Talk Discussion highlights this challenging topic through a productive and dynamic conversation. Evaluation comments include:

“This helped me to think more broadly about the team and who needs support.”
“Thank you for inspiring us to develop a trauma informed wellness workshop to address moral distress.”


Examples of Outstanding Online Learning Experiences

While the first virtual Nexus Summit was an opportunity to focus on the content that is advancing the field of IPE, it was also an opportunity to showcase outstanding examples of how to lead sessions and teach online. The sessions below span several tracks, and are all exemplary in the design and delivery of online learning experiences.


Designing Online IPE

In the two Lightning Talk Discussions highlighted below, the Online, Virtual and Technology-Facilitated Interprofessional Learning track leaders lead discussion through curated questions to bring forward six models of innovative online IPE in the pre-professional and clinical learning environments. Some of these innovations were in response to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, while other learning opportunities were designed prior to the pandemic.


Patients are Part of the IPE Team

Engagement of patients, families, and community members has been central to the design of the Nexus Summit since its inaugural conference in 2016. This year, some of the presentations and discussions in the IPE Through the Eyes of Individuals (Patients, Clients, People), Families and Caregivers, and Communities track, led by our track leaders, provided vibrant discussion about models for meaningful integration of the patient as part of the IPE team. Themes drawn from the evaluation comments of these sessions include “meeting community need,” “patients involved in the design,” and “measuring impact in the community.”


IPE Student Initiatives

Students, residents, and learners are an important part of the design of Nexus Summit presentations. The Lightning Talk Discussion highlighted below lifts up student voices and initiatives and was helpful to participants in “learning what the learners want”. Explore other student-led initiatives and presentations in the Student-Led and Engaged Interprofessional Collaboration track.


IPE Leadership Lessons in Interprofessional Learning in Practice, a Focus on Academic Health Centers

The Learning in Practice track was a powerful collection of presentations and discussions that moved the conversation firmly into the clinical learning environment and the impact of IPE on health systems and the communities they serve. The track leaders highlighted several discussions that moved the needle. These discussions spanned the Learning in Practice and Interprofessional Leadership and Mentoring tracks.


Building and Measuring a Longitudinal IPE Curriculum

Along with the focus in the practice environment, the Nexus Summit provides a convening for educators and education administrators to share their models of integrated, longitudinal interprofessional curriculum, integrated into the community. The models highlighted below offer practical tips on resourcing, organization, and pedagogy. Evaluation comments on these sessions include:

“Very energized by the way these initiatives were growing IPE across colleges within a campus as well as crossing over to help drive innovation and chance in the current practice environment.”
“This is pushing me to think about how to demonstrate the benefits of IPE at the patient and community outcomes level.”
“I will use this information to propose a new curriculum model to my administration.”


Using the HPAC-National Center Guidance on Developing Quality Interprofessional Education for the Health Professions

The Accreditation Considerations track focused on the application and use of the Guidance on Developing Quality Interprofessional Education for the Health Professions document, published by the National Center and the Health Professions Accreditors Collaborative in 2019, through several different approaches. Evaluation comments on the sessions highlighted below include:

“The Guidance is going to be my close companion as I work to create a longitudinal curriculum to replace one-off events.”
“I plan to use this information to help motivate my team and faculty across the institution to promote quality IPE activities using the Guidance document.”
“I have been chipping away at a proposal to present to administration, based on the Lightning Talks. Earlier this week I was put on the spot in a meeting to answer a few IPE questions. I pushed the [lessons from the Guidance] and pushed for faculty development aligning social mission with IPE. The beginning of my buy-in.”
