Presenting at the Nexus Summit:
The inclusion of interprofessional education (IPE) in health professions education, and focus on the IPEC core competencies , can be attributed to their contribution toward reduction in medical error and improvement in healthcare quality and the patient experience. The impact of exposure to interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) during integrated clinical experiences (ICE) on student physical therapists’ (SPT) competencies and perceptions of IPCP has been studied, but does participation in intraprofessional practice within a multidisciplinary clinic affect the level of impact? SPTs…
The impact of the hidden curriculum within healthcare education is well documented. International service learning has been used to develop students’ global awareness, cultural competence, and progression toward the IPEC core competencies. However, the impact of international interprofessional collaborative service experiences on behaviors of experienced health care professionals (HCPs) has not been studied. Since these HCPs provide the hidden curriculum, more information is needed to assess the potential of interprofessional collaborative service experiences in redirecting HCPs toward…
Interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative practice (IPCP) can reduce medical error and improve healthcare quality and the patient experience. In addition, most academic accrediting bodies now require the integration of IPE within healthcare professions’ educational curricula to earn accreditation. This study's aim is to determine how much IPE is required and which types of instructional activities foster student progress, toward the IPEC Core Competencies. First-year OT (n=33) and PT students (n=22) together participated in two IPE activities one week apart. The first activity (“…
The influence of the hidden curriculum within healthcare education impacts students’ perception of Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP). However, information regarding IPCP within physical therapy requires further investigation, particularly during clinical experiences. IPCP improves healthcare quality, patient experience, and medical error rates. Therefore, the aim of this study is to identify the influence of the hidden curriculum on entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students’ perception of IPCP and progression toward the IPEC Core Competencies during their terminal…
