Leveraging simulation to create comparably-effective interprofessional learning experiences for distance education students in the healthcare professions: moving the F-2-F case study to an online simulation
Interprofessional collaboration (IPC) and effective teaming in healthcare is built on many attributes that are commonly fostered through face-to-face (F-2-F) interactions in the workplace. However, it is common for clinicians going back to school for advanced degrees to seek online, distance education programs. Can these programs provide online activities that effectively promote IPC? Educational simulation for online post-professional healthcare professions students poses a unique challenge when university centers for simulation and innovation are historically geared to prepare pre-license…
