This Lightning Talk best addresses the theme of Evaluation, Assessment and the Use of Informatics in IPE.
The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) offers students and faculty across six colleges many opportunities to engage in interprofessional education initiatives. Students are provided opportunities to participate in required interprofessional coursework, elective courses, Interprofessional Day events, case competitions, Research Day, shadowing experiences, simulation exercises, and many other activities. MUSC used an informatics solution to build a tracking system that improves organization, access, motivation and workload for students and faculty involved in IPE. This online tracking system is entitled Applied Teamwork Competency Portfolio allows students to track their interprofessional education learning journey from admission through graduation, download certificates from successfully completed courses, earn trophies and tokens, generate a formal document to supplement their curriculum vitae, and apply for interprofessional elective courses. Since full implementation in Fall 2019, 4,000 plus logins have been recorded. During this Lightning Talk, a demonstration of the tracking system’s operation will occur and promote participatory audience discussion. Resources to enhance other institutions’ abilities to create and implement tracking systems will be shared.
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.
