Occupational therapy (OT) students who participated in a specific Interprofessional Education (IPE) experience called the Interprofessional Team Immersion (IPTI) were the participants in this content analysis. The purpose was to gain a deeper understanding of the application of IPE core competency domain behaviors and to what extent they were evident during on-campus health care simulation. The aim of this study was twofold: 1) examine feedback to assess and inform our institution, as well as others about how to strengthen and sustain interprofessional learning through simulation IPE (Sim-IPE) experiences, and 2) examine the influence of learning and applying the IPE competencies during the team, case-based health care simulations. To determine whether students applied IPE core competencies during simulation, the Interprofessional Collaborator Assessment Rubric (ICAR) was utilized for analyzing and scoring team-based simulation videos for the core competency domains of Communication, Roles and Responsibilities, and Team Functioning. The results showed promising evidence that OT students are applying IPE core competency behaviors during health care interprofessional team simulation experiences. OT students demonstrated behaviors associated with Communication, followed by Team Functioning, then Roles and Responsibilities in terms of consistency and the influence of behaviors during simulation experiences. Results will be shared, as well as application opportunities to other professions beyond OT for generalizability. The themes of Interprofessional Learning for Collaborative Practice and Education through the use of simulation, and case-based experiences, to address a case laden with social determinants of health to carry over from campus to community. Assuring learning opportunities are measuring learning outcomes and IPE core competencies to transfer into practice and assure quality improvement is an important aspect of IPE. This measure and content analysis can be achieved by other programs and institutions.
In support of improving patient care, this activity is planned and implemented by The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education Office of Interprofessional Continuing Professional Development (OICPD). The OICPD is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
The National Center OICPD is approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to provide continuing education to Athletic Trainers (ATs). This program is eligible for Category A hours/CEUs. ATs should claim only those hours actually spent in the educational program.
This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit for learning and change.
Physicians: The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education designates this live activity for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with their participation.
Physician Assistants: The American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) accepts credit from organizations accredited by the ACCME.
Nurses: Participants will be awarded contact hours of credit for attendance at this workshop.
Nurse Practitioners: The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Program (AANPCP) accepts credit from organizations accredited by the ACCME and ANCC.
Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians: This activity is approved for contact hours.
Athletic Trainers: This program is eligible for Category A hours/CEUs. ATs should claim only those hours actually spent in the educational program.
Social Workers: As a Jointly Accredited Organization, the National Center is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. The National Center maintains responsibility for this course. Social workers completing this course receive continuing education credits.
IPCE: This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
