Interprofessional education, IPE, IPEC competencies
The healthcare industry is dependent on the successful delivery of effective education to undergraduate healthcare students. Curriculum and instruction, experiences both inside and outside of the classroom, significantly contribute to students' successful development. A critical element for successful healthcare delivery is to continue building a sustainable culture for all healthcare workers that will increase skills for improved ethics and values, inter-disciplinary understanding of roles and responsibilities, interprofessional communication, and teamwork. One teaching approach that continues to produce positive results is interprofessional education (IPE). This teaching method, supported by the experiential learning theory, brings clinical stakeholders together to problem-solve and make decisions based on best practices for improved health outcomes. The current study expanded the stakeholder group of student participants in IPE to include both clinical and healthcare administration undergraduate students from a private, Midwestern college to measure the difference, if any that the group composition via IPE (case study) had on undergraduate student’s self-reported proficiencies of Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) competencies as measured through a survey.
