Interprofessional Education In Healthcare: Establishing A Successful Dialogue For Students And Faculty


Goldberg, LR and Mosack, V and Brickell, J, Interprofessional Education In Healthcare: Establishing A Successful Dialogue For Students And Faculty, American Journal of Health Sciences, 3, (1) pp. 53-58. ISSN 2156-7794 (2012) [Refereed Article]


Effective healthcare today is built on interprofessional, population- and evidence-based approaches to provide care that is safe, timely, equitable, patient-centered, and efficient. As a result, there is increasing recognition by faculty, administrators, and community professionals of the importance of providing students with ongoing opportunities to problem-solve and learn together in interprofessional teams. In order to document baseline data on the interprofessional activities underway in a College of Health Professions, faculty and staff in each of the College’s departments completed a published survey, Interprofessional Education Assessment and Planning Instrument for Academic Institutions. Faculty comments showed they viewed interprofessional education and collaborative clinical practice as important. However, survey data showed interprofessional education generally was limited to discipline-specific activities. Data were important in encouraging faculty to begin a productive dialogue as to how interprofessional education opportunities could be implemented more effectively for students.
