Interprofessional practice and education (IPE)

This seminar seeks to examine the effectiveness of Creighton’s IPE Passport activities in preparing today’s practitioners to communicate and collaborate effectively in interdisciplinary teams following graduation. We will provide strategies and discuss tools utilized to examine IPE learning opportunities and the themes learned. Additionally, we will apply lessons learned to enhance future IPE Passport activities.
This information addresses the Summit theme of Interprofessional Learning for Collaborative Practice and Education by sharing valuable insight on how curricular experiences and IPE Passport activities can be enhanced to meet the needs of graduates who are transitioning to practice. Examining the influence of interprofessional activities can ensure that future healthcare graduates are prepared to contribute, collaborate, and work in team-based healthcare models. This will be expanded to share strategies and tools that can be used in other curricular settings to provide quality, impactful learning experiences to prepare new graduates for successful interprofessional communication, role understanding, and partnership.
