We started our journey to learn about moral distress and moral injury in early 2019. Our impetus at the time was to understand the experience of community health teams who felt they were not doing all they could for their patients. We had no idea that this work would take us from our emphasis on providing strategies for care teams working with vulnerable populations to supporting healthcare providers on the frontlines of a global pandemic. Moral distress and moral injury…

The impact of introductory experiences on student attitudes about IPE has been demonstrated in a variety of institutional settings and health science professions. Typically, the effectiveness of IPE experiences has been assessed within a single cohort. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential effect of cohort on student attitudes about IPE following an online introductory IPE course delivered to different student cohorts.   At the University of Michigan, an…

While described learning outcomes are often similar across the institutions, the course design varies considerably from site to site. The aim was to compare students’ learning outcomes as measured by the Interprofessional Collaborative Competencies Attainment Survey…

Background: Emerging models of care highlight the importance of interprofessional collaboration (IPC) and research demonstrates the bidirectional relationship between oral health and systemic disease. This is an ideal opportunity to incorporate oral health into interprofessional education (IPE) learning activities. Focusing on preventive health through oral care in IPE activities improves patient outcomes, decreases medical costs, and improves the health of the population. …
