The Creighton University IPE curriculum is a distributed model in which each health science students must complete 3 IPE Passport activities before graduation. Some activities are embedded in the curriculum while others are menu-based. One challenge of this distributed model is that there are variables that cannot be controlled by the IPE Center. Examples include student illness on the day an IPE activity or a student failing to complete a mandatory portion of the activity. Because these variables could negatively impact a student’s ability to graduate, the IPE Center pre-planned a back-up activity. This activity is a one-hour, online, synchronous patient-centered case and panel discussion that is executed several weeks prior to graduation. For the first offering spring 2020, we developed a concussion/dental injury football case involving a minor, his family and the healthcare team. Students were tasked to develop a patient-centered plan that included transitions in care: field, ED, rehabilitation, outpatient dental, home, and school. This activity became essential when our in-person activities were cancelled due to COVID-19. In the inaugural execution, the activity had 111 learners from 8 professions including dental (4.5%), EMS (14.4%), medicine (8.1%), nursing graduate (3.6%), nursing undergraduate (41.4%), occupational therapy (5.4%), pharmacy (1.8%), physical therapy (2.7%), and physician assistant (18 %). Post activity surveys indicated that 95% of students agreed or strongly agreed that the as a result of the activity, they will use skills gained in practice and 96% agreed or strongly agreed that it was a valuable learning experience. This lighting talk will provide discuss the development, facilitation and assessment of this patient-center online, synchronous activity.

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. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. The National Center maintains responsibility for this course. Social workers completing this course receive continuing education credits.
This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit for learning and change.
