Much attention has focused on the development of standardized instruments to assess competencies for collaborative practice in interprofessional education (IPE). However, standardized scales provide limited meaningful feedback to enhance student interprofessional learning. To address this issue, a single-point rubric was developed to support the provision of structured narrative feedback to students in competency-based assessments (CBAs). This research aims to 1) develop and pilot a single-…

Self-reported assessment tools are commonly used in IPE to measure change in student attitudes and/or perceptions. Real time pre-tests measurements are subject to ‘response-shift bias’. A response-shift bias occurs when there is a change in the participant’s understanding of the content, therefore changing the participant’s standard of measurement (Howard and Dailey, J. Appl. Psychol. 64, 144; 1979). The Student Perceptions of Interprofessional Clinical Education - Revised 2 (SPICE-R2) tool…

A substantial number of interprofessional learning experiences have been developed using didactic formats, yet students often find these experiences artificial and the impacts of these experiences often dissipate once learners enter the clinical environment.1-5 There is consensus that IPE should be integrated into clinical education settings or other experiential contexts.5 This session will highlight a recent, nationally-implemented educational intervention that situates IPE within…

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…

Background/Aims Interprofessional education has a significant impact on learners' attitudes, skills and behaviors towards teamwork. There is also evidence that IPE can improve clinical outcomes. Our ability to modify attitudes to teamwork using short educational interventions is limited. This is useful since many programs struggle with enough curricular time for comprehensive IPE programming. Our hypothesis was that first-year student attitudes towards teamwork would improve with our…

Healthcare is a complex and dynamic industry. It is often disjointed and fragmented as care is provided in a siloed manner. At the center of the healthcare industry, patients and their families often find the healthcare system difficult to navigate in order to effectively manage their own care. Through team-based care, healthcare teams can partner with patients and their families to coordinate care, collaborate on treatment plans and ultimately improve the outcomes for patients and their…

California Baptist University’s (CBU) health profession programs recognize the international call for integration of interprofessional education competencies to prepare students for collaborative practice. Called2Collaborate, CBU’s IPE leadership team, engage, educate and mentor faculty to integrate interprofessional curricula, learning experiences and learning assessments across health-related disciplines at California Baptist University and in the community. One proposed approach to…

The presentation describes efficient and effective computational methods to evaluate an interprofessional education program. Methods from natural language processing were used to assess common themes that emerged from the text of PowerPoint presentations that teams of interprofessional students created as a part of an advocacy project.   Over 700 students from nine different health professions programs across the university are grouped into teams of five to six students, and…

Tools for measuring outcomes of interprofessional education (IPE) have been criticized as having weak evidence for validity. The purpose of this study was to compare previous validity evidence for three commonly used self-report tools with data from 684 learners at four U.S. universities to better understand how these measures perform across contexts and learner levels. The research team consisted of faculty representing athletic training, dentistry, dental hygiene, dietetics, medicine,…

It can be challenging to effectively evaluate large-scale, interprofessional activities across multiple programs. 2019 USF Health hosted its Annual Interprofessional Education Day to promote collaboration across health disciplines. USF Health Interprofessional Education Day included professionals from 8 different programs (athletic training, nursing, MD, public health, pharmacy, physician assistant, physical therapy, and behavioral and community sciences). By including such a diversity of…
