Year 1: Summary

Interprofessional (IP) collaboration is required to work effectively in today’s healthcare system. In order to practice interprofessionally, healthcare providers need to be trained interprofessionally. Incompatible curricular alignment, timetabling and space limit interprofessional education (IPE) opportunities on campus. However, students from different professions are often together during clinical placements, where up to 40-60% of their curriculum takes place. Health professional (HP) programs therefore rely on clinical placements for IPE. With thousands of placements across BC, there is little understanding of the quality or comparability of the IPE experience.

The UBC Health Practice Education Committee will work together with stakeholders to identify key elements for a successful interprofessional collaborative practice learning experience for HP students and provide a model for a common IP clinical placement curriculum that will ensure all HP learners, regardless of location, timing or length of clinical placement, receive the IPE necessary to work collaboratively in practice.

Year 2: Summary

Interprofessional (IP) collaboration is required to work effectively in today’s healthcare system. The literature suggests that healthcare providers need to be trained interprofessionally to practice collaboratively. Incompatible curricular alignment, timetabling and space limits interprofessional education (IPE) opportunities on campus. However, students often work together with clinicians from different disciplines during clinical placements, where up to 40% of their curriculum takes place. Health professional (HP) programs, therefore, should leverage clinical placements for IPE. The UBC Health Practice Education Committee and key stakeholders have identified some sustainable approaches for supporting interprofessional collaborative practice learning experiences for HP students who are on placements. The flexible method will ensure all HP learners, regardless of location, timing or length of clinical placement, receive the IPE necessary to work collaboratively in practice. Phase II will further engage UBC Health Programs (including the FoM programs) in the implementation across distributed clinical placement sites.
