Abstract

Interprofessional Education (IPE) is an approach to teaching and learning bringing together students from two or more professions to learn about, from and with each other in service of enabling effective collaboration, while the goal is to improve health outcomes through the education of a collaborative practice-ready workforce that is prepared to respond to local health needs. This paper is to report an HRSA-funded IPE project that concentrates on integrating clinical simulation, distance education, and delivery of care using telehealth into IPE opportunities for graduate advanced practice nursing students along with graduate medical, pharmacy, and industrial engineering students. The students from these four professions learn together to utilize and evaluate telehealth technologies in the delivery of patient care. This innovative IPE program is divided into 4 phases whereby Phase 1 allows students to interact and develop the basics of teamwork in an interprofessional care environment. During Phase 2, IPE teams create solutions for standardized patient case scenarios. Phase 3 involves IPE teams providing care at school-based clinics. The teams provide care through both direct patient interaction and via telehealth technologies. Phase 4 of the program involves team reflection and intergration throughout the program as well as a final summative evaluation. The promising preliminary results obtained from the pilot implementation of this program at the University of Tennessee reflect the applicability of the proposed program.
