Background: Preclinical medical students infrequently have the opportunity to engage with interprofessional colleagues and learn their roles and responsibilities. Early interprofessional education (IPE) can help students in their transition to the clinical learning environment (CLE). This study aimed to assess the impact of an IPE experience on first-year medical students’ understanding of PT and OT, and intentions to incorporate both into future care plans.   Methods: First-…

Background Development of interprofessional education (IPE) at an institution may occur gradually, and the size of participant cohorts may naturally fluctuate. Fewer participants in a given period translates to small sample sizes, impacting program evaluation and the ability to detect an effect of an IPE intervention. More flexible methods of statistical analysis are required if IPE data fail to meet underlying assumptions necessary for reliable results using the standard asymptotic…

Background Interprofessional team-based training (IPTT) promotes positive attitudes towards working in IP teams and helps to create a “collaborative practice-ready” healthcare workforce. The challenge is to integrate IPTT learning experiences into university-wide clinical courses to cross all four IP collaborative competency sub-domains (IP values/ethics, recognition of roles and responsibilities, effective IP communication and teamwork) while also introducing participants to the…

Background: Home-based care (HBC) is a valuable tool to provide care to medically underserved populations. Interprofessional education has become an integral part in undergraduate and professional curricula, however, applications of team-based training in HBC are often missing from curricula. When included, instruction in HBC often utilizes didactic instruction or laboratory experiences, of which are discipline specific and lack a focus on integration of team-based care.  …

Background: Medical providers demonstrate weight bias (WB) to varying degrees, which negatively impacts quality of care and patient outcomes. WB is defined as the “negative weight-related attitudes, beliefs, assumptions and judgments toward individuals who are overweight and obese”. WB develops early in medical education, yet there are few established WB healthcare training programs. The objective of this study was to provide an interprofessional education (IPE) simulation activity,…

The VIPE site http://virtual-ipe.com was released a few days into the COVID-19 pandemic. The free site contains asynchronous content to support students establishing and understanding of the various health and health related professions, video interviews with professionals, and several cases, one including COVID-19. These cases and this IPE model have brought healthcare providers and students from around the world together, providing opportunities for connections across professions and…

Background: Communication and interpersonal interactions are essential in the practice of patient-and family-centered, team-based collaborative healthcare. Continuous learning and reflection on communication skills are important for all members of the healthcare team, with great benefit when done interprofessionally. Medical improvisation (improv) is the adaptation of improvisational theater principles and skills to the healthcare context. These skills of deep listening, clear…

Rationale: Homeless patients often have multiple interacting social, psychological, behavioral and medical needs. Interprofessional (IP) teams of relevant health care professionals have been shown to deliver high quality care for such vulnerable patients while also reducing the need for costly emergency and inpatient care. Our IP team of clinicians and trainees from six primary care and mental health disciplines has cared for 3000 homeless Veterans for the past four years. Our…
