The Interdisciplinary Educational Apartment Simulation or IDEAS was started in person as an IPE simulation focused on the IPEC competencies of teamwork, communication, and roles/ responsibilities through an in-person home health simulation. At the beginning of the COVID pandemic, we were forced to transition the simulation virtually through the use of a tele-presence robot in a standardized patient's home. Post- pandemic, we are still virtual and we aren't going back! The feedback and logistics of the virtual simulation have added value to our program and this talk will describe how other institutions can find the same benefit.
This talk will discuss the move to virtual and the infrastructure and support needed to continue a successful Interprofessional simulation.
Attendees will discuss the technology of tele-presence and gain concepts to apply to their own projects or simulations that were abandoned during the pandemic.
Attendees will also identify how emerging technology can address rural health disparities through an Interprofessional lens.
In addition, this technology is also directly applicable to home health, telemedicine, and other forms of healthcare through alternative means.
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.
