Anti-Racism in Action - a Longitudinal Module for Developing Anti-Racist Health Care Teams

Wednesday, September 14, 2022, 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm CDT

Building from an existing module, an interprofessional team of faculty, staff and students created a longitudinal, five-part module entitled, “Anti-Racism in Action” involving over 1000 second year learners and 76 facilitators from six Ohio State health sciences colleges. Learning objectives spanned five IPE competencies (Evidence Based Practice, Collaborative Leadership, Interprofessional Communication, Roles and Responsibilities, and Teams and Teamwork). Over seven weeks, students: (1) completed individual readings and videos and a quiz on definitions of racism and its impact in health care, (2) participated in a live team event where students discussed the pre-work in their longitudinal, interprofessional teams and reviewed and chose a case scenario to address in their second team meeting, (3) completed readings/videos about addressing racism and anti-racist practices, (4) accomplished a second live in-person team event, where they engaged in peer teaching around their pre-work, worked through a case scenario to identify racism at play and develop a plan to address it as an IP team, and presented their plan to a facilitator, and (5) completed self-assessment and session evaluations.

This Lightning talk will share quantitative and qualitative data, including student and facilitator feedback, assessment data, individual student self-assessment using Interprofessional Collaborative Competencies Attainment Scale, and facilitator and student assessment of team functioning using the Direct Observation of Team Interactions tool. Lessons learned and plans for the future will be discussed, as well.
