This lightning talk describes an innovative continuing education curriculum for health professionals to develop and apply the IPEC competencies in their roles as providers and preceptors within interprofessional clinical learning environments. Preceptors create powerful influences on their learners via modeling and the hidden curriculum (Bartlett et al, 2020). Considering the scope of this influence, there is minimal existing content created for preceptors to enhance their skills for interprofessional precepting (Barnes et al, 2017). This session will summarize the hybrid curriculum content for the WILD Series (Workplace Interprofessional Learning & Development), present participant profession demographic and program feedback data, and share lessons learned in implementation and assessment. Each WILD Series offering consists of 5 weekly emails and one debriefing session focused on topical concepts in one Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) competency area: Communication, Roles and Responsibilities, and Teams and Teamwork. Content in the competency area Values and Ethics is interwoven across all 3 offerings, rooted in consideration of social determinants and health equity. Weekly emails include 3-5 minute content videos, tangible skills practice prompts, reflection questions, and resources for further study. Each week, preceptors are encouraged to share the content and skills with colleagues and learners. The synchronous debriefing session involves small groups of preceptors exchanging personal applications of the content. The curriculum is interprofessional at its core as its authors are from three different professional backgrounds (nursing, physical therapy, psychology).
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.
