Infusing Interprofessional Education/Interprofessional Collaborative Practice in Your Curriculum
The 2017 AuD Student Day program at the ASHA National Office included a presentation by Dr. Elena M. Umland, PharmD, co-director of the Jefferson Center for InterProfessional Education (JCIPE) and associate dean for Academic Affairs and professor of Pharmacy Practice, Thomas Jefferson University, College of Pharmacy. Dr. Umland presented an overview of Interprofessional Education (IPE) and Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPP) and its importance in the education of audiology students. Through a case study, the attendees worked together to discuss a patient case applicable to the IPE/IPP learning environment. We hope that you will use the video presentation and case study below as part of your curriculum.
The topic addressed in the presentation: What is IPE, and how does it prepare graduates for IPP?
After completing this session, you will be able to
- identify the importance of IPE in health professions education;
- explain the role of the IPE Core Competencies relative to IPP; and
- describe various resources that you can use in developing IPE programming.
