First Year Online IPE Implementation: Student Outcomes
MetadataShow full item record
Background:From a healthcare education perspective, many accrediting bodies now require Interprofessional Education (IPE) as best practice for achieving safe, high quality patientcentered care (1,2,3,4). In response, Clarkson College began requiring all in-coming students (undergraduate and graduate, on-campus and distance) to complete a new online course, IPE 301, throughout their time at the College. This graduation requirement consists of: a) four online modules with lecture, videos, note-taking guides and quizzes (completed during their first semester); b) pre-, mid-, and post-test Interprofessional Collaborative Competencies Attainment Survey (ICCAS); and c) participation in three IPE events with written reflections (categories include knowledge, community and service). The purpose of this project was to evaluate the outcomes for 402 students beginning the IPE course in that initial year of implementation, 2018-2019.
