Background: Dental professionals have been strong advocates for interprofessional education (IPE). At the University of Florida College of Dentistry, all first-year dental students participate in a required interprofessional service-learning experience, Putting Families First (PFF). During PFF, students in diverse, interprofessional teams of four, are assigned a local volunteer family during the first academic year. Teams conduct four home visits and implement a health…

Background: The manual muscle test (MMT) is used by numerous healthcare practitioners including nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and physicians to assess muscle strength on physical exam and is graded on scale of 0-5. However, the MMT lacks interrater reliability, sensitivity in grading antigravity muscle strengths, and ability to be conducted in a telehealth visit. Our team sought to design an accurate, cost-effective, and accessible device for assessing and recording…

Background Education across health professions, rather than in silos, is essential to preparing future healthcare providers for team-based healthcare. A major challenge is how to involve distance learners in IP team activities. This poster documents progress and challenges encountered in engaging an interprofessional (IP) design team of students and faculty working in partnership, to develop an on-line IP Collaboratory course.   Design Students, faculty and staff…

Background: Most pharmacy student experiential IPE occurs in a naturally occurring and non-deliberate fashion. Opportunities for interprofessional teamwork may be limited to the rotational environment and access to other disciplines and their students. The purpose of this project was to provide a diverse series of intentional IPE experiences to increase exposure to a greater number of pharmacy students in their APPE rotations during their final clinical year. Design: Intentional IPE…

With nearly 40% of the general population experiencing some form of dizziness (including vertigo) in their lifetime, dizziness and balance disorders account for a significant portion of patient medical complaints. These disorders can have profound effects on an individual personally, financially, and medically. This includes increased psychiatric issues such as social phobia, an increased need for sick leave from work, and an increased morbidity and mortality, especially in the elderly, due…

Background: Currently, aspects of ergonomics, including how different health professionals work to prevent musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), are taught to first-year dental students (DS1s), occupational therapy students (OTs) and physical therapy students (PTs) uniprofessionally at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UT Health San Antonio). Opportunities exist for these students to learn ergonomics together in didactic and clinical settings, which promises to…

Background   The University of Colorado-Anschutz’s Interprofessional Education (IPE) Program emphasizes teamwork and collaboration and its critical role in safe and effective patient care. Building on these concepts, School of Dental Medicine (SDM) faculty recognized a curriculum gap regarding safe patient management for individuals who experience significant difficulty with mobility, specifically transfers. Therefore, SDM faculty collaborated with Physical Therapy (PT)…

Background and Objective: Use of gaming has been shown to have a positive impact on higher education; however, data on the use of gaming activities in interprofessional health sciences education is lacking. The objective of this study was to describe the development and implementation of an interdisciplinary gaming activity to enhance learning and develop teamwork skills.   Methods: Faculty members created an innovative, educational game, which focused on two “gaming” strategies…

Background   Building on a previous IPE workshop where nurse practitioner (NP) students learned oral examination techniques from dental medicine (DM) students, faculty identified an opportunity to scaffold in a new learning activity in the Family NP/Adult Gerontology NP curriculum by incorporating a case study for the interprofessional groups of students to work through. These IPE activities address several nursing education competencies and dental education accreditation…

BACKGROUND: The next generation of health care workers will require interprofessional education (IPE) to prepare for interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP). To date, IPE growth and development in the United States has been primarily preclinical. Leading organizations recognize, however, that IPE must move meaningfully into clinical learning environments to improve health outcomes. The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UT Health San Antonio) is dedicated to…
