Roles of Health Professions Module

This is a classroom teaching plan/guideline for presentation to learners in any health profession and at any level. Interprofessional education (IPE) is defined as "occurring when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care"(CAIPE, 2002). This module provides an example of IPE where the learners are comprised of one discipline but the facilitators are from multiple disciplines. This module was piloted with a group of over 100 baccalaureate nursing students. Panelists/facilitators were clinicians and faculty members from 6 disciplines but additional disciplines could have been included. The session was conducted three times. Evaluations from students were excellent. Faculty members rated the session very highly.

Interprofessional Communication SBAR Module

This is a classroom teaching plan/guideline for presentation to learners in any health profession and at any level. Interprofessional education (IPE) is defined as "occurring when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care" (CAIPE, 2002). This is an example of IPE where both the learners and facilitators are from more than one discipline. This module was piloted with over 100 baccalaureate nursing students and 14 third year medical students. Therefore, the scenarios used for the small group session related more specifically to nurse-physician interactions. It is important that scenarios be adapted or developed specifically for the professions who are the learners. The evaluations from the students and the faculty participants were all excellent.
