IPE REPS: Reflect, Engage, Practice, & Summarize for Better Patient Outcomes

Thursday, October 1, 2020, 1:05 pm - 2:05 pm EDT

The Campbell University Office of IPE (CUIPE) hosts four major IPE events each academic year, for which space is reserved on the academic calendar of the Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences. Each event is attended by all CPHS students along with different classes within CUSOM, the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine. The IPE Office’s mission states that they seek to “ultimately create an integrated continuum balancing curriculum and team-based care,” and has been working to strategically place events on this continuum which progresses through IPEC competencies and concepts. Launched in 2020, IPE REPS will take place in the fall semester as the second IPE event of the year. The first event focuses on introducing students to broad IPE concepts and what it is like to collaborate interprofessionally. After this and after progressing through further uni-professional coursework, students are ready to delve deeper into the specific roles and responsibilities of each profession. IPE REPS is named for its four central components: Reflect, Engage, Practice, and Summarize. Each component is designed to increase and strengthen student understanding of the roles and responsibilities of each profession represented by the programs of CPHS and CUSOM. The essential addition of this event to the CUIPE curriculum further equips students, as emerging healthcare professionals, to collaborate effectively with an interprofessional healthcare team which includes the patient, family, caregiver, and community as crucial stakeholders. Through IPE REPS, students learn how each different professional cares for patients and communities, and how this critical understanding of roles and responsibilities improves the care they will deliver to patients and communities. In this lightning talk, the CUIPE team will present on the development, assessment, and results of the event.
