Why One Should Attend:
As health care delivery continues to evolve around the notion of a team of care providers working together to improve patient outcomes, interprofessional education becomes a critical component of success. Regardless of primary discipline, educators’ focus should be on providing their students interprofessional experiences that can transform the way students learn and practice with members from other disciplines. Students’ success in such interprofessional experiences largely depends on their perceptions and attitudes towards interprofessional education. This workshop is intended to provide educators a variety of tools for assessing their students’ perceptions and attitudes towards interprofessional education and what approaches might be employed to help promote a professional identity within each discipline that is grounded in the idea of learning and performing with other professions.
1) Review expected benefits/outcomes of interprofessional education
2) Evaluate students’ perceptions regarding interprofessional education
3) Evaluate students’ attitudes toward interprofessional health care teams
4) Assess students’ readiness for interprofessional learning
5) Develop approaches for promoting among students the notion of learning and performing with other professions
