This talk presents a model for assessing the efficacy of interprofessional education (IPE) pedagogies across post-professional students’ degree pathways. The model includes initial assessment benchmarks, course-based installations, mid-program assessments, and final assessment benchmarks at graduation. Examples of signature IPE assignments and assessment tools will be shared, alongside an overall glimpse of the curriculum mapping across programs that supports the model. Connections will be made between the IPE assessments and work-place readiness for interprofessional collaborative practice. The pedagogies utilized are intentionally aimed at improving care through collaborative, team-based methods. This aim improves value through understanding roles and responsibilities of team members and the collective competence of the team, resulting in educational strategies for implementation in workplace and community settings. Specifically, signature assignments and pedagogies focus on developing relationships with members of the health care team. An online non-technical simulation (ONTS) will be showcased, that demonstrates intentional engagement/integration of people/patients, families, and communities.

Accreditation Details

In support of improving patient care, this activity is planned and implemented by The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education. The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

As a Jointly Accredited Provider, the National Center is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program.
