Abstract

Incorporating interprofessional education (IPE) into the required curriculum of all health professions is important to achieve the Triple Aim in health care. This study aimed to demonstrate that exposure to an Interprofessional (IP) Practice Experience positively impacted students' IP behaviors.Participating students consisted of medical, nursing, and pharmacy students exposed to an IP Practice Experience that intentionally aligns an IP clinical experience with an IPE curriculum. An interprofessional teaching objective structured clinical examination (iTOSCE) using a standardized patient was developed to assess students' IP behaviors before and after exposure to the IP Practice Experience. Faculty and peer observers completed a rubric to evaluate the IP student teams during the iTOSCE.Sixteen IP teams consisting of a medical, nursing and pharmacy student per team were assessed pre-post the IP Practice Experience. Follow-up paired t-tests demonstrated that both faculty and student ratings of these teams were significantly higher at post-test than pre-test. A significant interaction revealed that faculty ratings improved more than the student ratings from pre-to post-test.Exposure to the IP Practice Experience improved student behavior related to IP communication and teamwork.
