Assessment of Interprofessional Education in Post-professional Degree Programs: A Conceptual Model

Thursday, October 22, 2020, 12:05 pm - 1:05 pm EDT

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.
