Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 6, Number 3 ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Interprofessional collaboration is a key component to patient safety and health profession education. This article will describe the development and implementation of a pilot educational teaching/learning simulation exercise designed to promote teamwork and collaboration between medical students and nursing students. This pilot simulation was an effective and well-received educational intervention. This is a beginning step toward the development of a culture that fosters interprofessional teamwork throughout health care.
