INTERPROFESSIONAL EDUCATION Today, Yesterday and Tomorrow,%20Yesterday%20&%20Tmmw%20%28Barr%29.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Learning and Teaching Support Network for Health Sciences and Practice commissioned this review from the UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE) to help teachers2 engage effectively in interprofessional education. The paper reviews arguments for shared learning for health and social care professions in the Government workforce and training strategy – collaboration, substitution and accelerated career progression – noting concern expressed by universities and their teachers to clarify ends and means. Current issues are then approached from an historical perspective, tracing the development of interprofessional education since the sixties as one of several movements from which it is distinguished with difficulty. Developments that prompted interprofessional education include the formation of primary care teams, the introduction of care in the community, investigations into child abuse and, later, strategies to effect change and quality improvement. Examples are given of work and college-based interprofessional education before and after qualification designed to modify attitudes, secure common foundations and competency-based outcomes. Application of adult learning principles leads into theoretical perspectives, which inform the choice of interactive learning methods. Theories from anthropology, social psychology and sociology help understand collaboration and obstacles that impede it. The re-framing of curricula is reported and moves to determine outcomes as occupational standards and benchmarks. Surveys by CAIPE, the Committee of Vice Chancellors and Principals (CVCP) and others describe interprofessional education nationwide, complemented by reviews and systematic searches of the literature to assemble the emerging evidence base. Dimensions are identified, a provisional typology floated and principles formulated for interprofessional education. Priorities identified for future research and development in interprofessional education include: • Completing work to establish the evidence base, so far as practicable, from existing sources • Setting and regulating standards • Evaluating selected programmes • Comparing experience of interprofessional education in different fields • Preparing the next generation of teachers • Weighing the implications of National Service Frameworks • Building interactive learning into undergraduate interprofessional education • Involving university teachers in work-based interprofessional education • Designing a continuum of professional, multiprofessional and interprofessional education • Relating objectives for shared learning to workforce planning The paper focuses upon interprofessional education in the UK with reference to all four countries, but stopping short of discussion of policies and practices in each. An international review (Barr, 2000) can be found on the CAIPE website ( while the Journal of Interprofessional Care3 covers collaboration in education, practice and research worldwide.

IHEIF - Building on the Foundations of IPE in Toronto  Site Reviews(0)
IHEIF Goal The University of Toronto’s Council of Health Sciences Deans (CHSD) is clear in its mandate to establish mandatory Interprofessional Education (IPE) curricula so that by 2009 all students from the Faculties of Health Sciences (including The Faculties of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physical Education and Health, Social Work and Rehabilitation Sciences) will partake in a curriculum that affords them the opportunity to graduate with IPE competencies. The approach taken by the University of Toronto is to create a curriculum that is theoretically driven, pedagogically sound, relevant to learners and faculty, and ultimately relevant to the patients and clients served. This competency-based, longitudinal curriculum design will include a mandatory core curriculum, complementary learning activities, simulation experiences, and a 4-week clinical placement where students will learn how to apply the theoretical concepts of collaboration in practice settings. IHEIF Background Health professional learners need to gain the competencies of collaborative patient-centered care from their university/college training. Hospitals and other clinical settings must provide the environments for students to receive role modeling of teamwork practices. Currently, much work needs to be done in both the educational and practice settings if we are to be successful in enhancing patient care in a collaborative manner. The federal and provincial governments believe that Interprofessional Collaboration (IPC) is one of the solutions to assist in strengthening our health care system by influencing recruitment and retention of practitioners, improving patient care outcomes and enhancing organizational and system efficiencies (e.g., reducing wait times).

A Preliminary Survey of Interprofessional Education  Site Reviews(0)
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to review the literature on interprofessional education (IPE) and report on a preliminary survey of the current status of interprofessional education in seven academic health centers (AHCs) that have schools of dentistry associated with them. There is wide variability in interpretation of the term “interprofessional,” and many barriers to interprofessional education exist including already overcrowded curricula in health professions schools, lack of support from faculty and administration, and financial constraints. Based on interviews completed at the authors’ home institutions, it was recommended that topics such as ethics, communication skills, evidence-based practice, and informatics could be effectively taught in an interprofessional manner. Currently, some academic health centers are attempting to develop interprofessional education programs, but most of these efforts do not include dental students. Of the seven AHCs investigated in this study, only two had formal interprofessional educational activities that involved students from two or more health professions education programs. Dental school participants in this study professed a strong interest in interprofessional programs, but many interviewees from other professional schools and AHC administrators perceived that the dental school was isolated from other schools and disinterested in IPE. Many health care setting models in the future will include dentists as part of an interdisciplinary health care team; consequently, it is important for dental schools to become an active participant in future interprofessional educational initiatives.

Emerging themes: an exploratoryresearch project of an interprofessional education module for medical  Site Reviews(0)
This paper will detail themes emerging from the first stage analysis of a project that wascommissioned by the Department of Health. In evaluating the effectiveness of interprofessional teaching and learning opportunities for undergraduate medical, dental and nursing students, the project will also reveal wider institutional problems and opportunities in shared curriculum development. The research focuses on an existing Community Module within the medical and dental curriculum, which has incorporated BSc nursing students. Based on pre-module focus groups, semi-structured interviews and an extract from a reflective project diary, the paper will describe the emerging themes of personal interest to the researchers concerning student perceptions and expectations of their shared learning. This early data suggests that in their first term at college, the students reveal inconsistencies in their stereotypical attitudes towards the ‘status’ of their intended professions. They also demonstrate attitudes that challenge traditional views. The students also offer similar discrepancies in their views on the value of interprofessional learning. It would be premature to draw any firm conclusions from this preliminary analysis of selected data. However, the analysis provides early evidence of the key cultural, professional and institutional issues central to the planning and implementation of interprofessional curricula.

Interprofessional education: effects on professional practice and health care outcomes (Review)  Site Reviews(0)
Training health and social care professionals to work together effectively Health and social care professionals, such as doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and social workers, need to work together effectively to take care of patients effectively. Unfortunately, professionals may not always work well together. Training and educational programmes have been developed as a possible way to improve how professionals work together to take care of patients. Interprofessional education (IPE) is any type of educational, training, teaching or learning session in which two or more health and social care professions are learning interactively. This review found six studies that evaluated the effects of IPE. Four of these studies found that IPE improved some ways in how professionals worked together and the care they provided. It improved the working culture in an emergency department and patient satisfaction; decreased errors in an emergency department; improved themanagement of the care delivered to domestic violence victims; and improved the knowledge and skills of professionals providing care to mental health patients. But two of those four studies also found that IPE had little to no effect on other areas. Two other studies found that IPE had little to no effect at all. The studies evaluated different types of IPE and were not of high quality. It is, therefore, difficult to be certain about the effect of IPE and to understand the key features of IPE to train health and social care professionals to work together effectively.

International Education Indicators  Site Reviews(0)
With the emergence and growth of the global economy, policymakers and educators have turned to international comparisons to assess how well national systems of education are performing. These comparisons shed light on a host of policy issues, from access to education and equity of resources to the quality of school outputs. They provide policymakers with benchmarks to assess their systems' performances, and to identify potential strategies to improve student achievement and system outputs. Education Indicators: An International Perspective is a compilation of indicators from a multitude of data sources which provides a rich array of information on the current state of education internationally. They are intended to provide snapshots of the U.S. education system in comparison to systems in countries around the world. Many of the indicators include comparisons between the United States and other industrialized nations with large economies - particularly those that are viewed as our major economic competitors, for example, the Group of Eight (G8) countries: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The data presented in these indicators are compiled from recent NCES international reports and surveys: G8 Indicator Reports Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS)

Inovate  Site Reviews(0)
Journal of Online Education. Innovate is a bimonthly, peer-reviewed online periodical (ISSN 1552-3233) published by the Fischler School of Education and Human Services at Nova Southeastern University. The journal focuses on the creative use of information technology (IT) to enhance educational processes in academic, commercial, and governmental settings. Our basic assumption is that innovative uses of technology in one sector can inform innovative uses of technology in each of the other sectors. We welcome submissions from a wide community of practitioners—from professors, teachers, trainers, and support specialists to program administrators, software designers, and leaders in the information technology industry. Articles generally fall into one of the following categories: Applied Research and Advanced Practice: Description of a technological innovation and its implementation, even in pilot form, and the provision of evidence that lends credence to its practicality and value. The topic may be large in scale (e.g., a technology tool tested at 10 institutions) or more limited in scope (e.g., a technology tool employed in a science class or in a corporate training program). Example: "Effective Technology Integration in Teacher Education: A Comparative Study of Six Programs." Development: Information on the newest IT educational projects, programs, tools, and trends. Example: "Web Publishing for the Individual, Not the Enterprise." Commentary: Critical reflections on the changing nature of teaching, learning, and training with IT in the 21st century. Example: "Experiencing Knowledge." Ideas to Watch: Concept descriptions that point to important new directions for research, product, and process development. Example: "Video Game Studies and the Emerging Instructional Revolution." Innovate also features a regular column by Stephen Downes. In Places to Go, Downes points readers to Web sites that feature creative uses of information technology in teaching and learning in all sectors of education. If you would like to suggest a site for review, send your nomination to [email protected] Innovate is dedicated to presenting articles via the most dynamic, interactive technology that is available. For each article, the journal provides an interactive webcast that connects authors and readers; a "discuss" feature that allows readers to post comments about the topic or article and respond to the comments of others; a "read-related" feature that links visitors to articles on similar topics; an "easy print" function; and a forwarding option that allows readers to share the article with colleagues. Innovate also offers an RSS (really simple syndication) feed as well as Innovate-Live forums hosted by our partner, ULiveandLearn. The forums currently serve as an experimental call for papers: Interested participants discuss a specific forum topic, present manuscript ideas related to it, and comment on manuscripts already submitted for publication consideration. (The current forum focuses on ePortfolios.)
