Brief Abstract

It has long been proposed that there are many problems with healthcare today. The concept of interdisciplinary healthcare teams is one of several strategies identified to improve the safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of patient care. The successful collaboration of health care professionals will not occur unless this concept is both taught and modeled throughout the health care worker’s professional education.

The AHS Department has hosted an Interprofessional Education Event for the past 4 years. All 2nd-year students in each of the AHS programs meet together for 4 hours and work collaboratively to study and answer case study questions. While working together, the students learn about the AHS professions and each other’s scope of practice and body of knowledge related to the case.

Several faculty members from the AHS Department will participate in a panel discussion of the implementation and effects of this learner-based activity. We will share with the SSU community details concerning the purpose, planning and the powerful effect our annual IPE event has had on both students and AHS faculty alike.
