Abstract

To understand patients’ experience of care provided by a team of students in an interprofessional teaching clinic.Patient satisfaction survey data was collected during a two-week period annually for three years. A sample of patients were interviewed to understand their experience of care. A mixed methods approach was used for data analysis.One-hundred-eighty-one patient satisfaction surveys and 13 interviews were analyzed. On average, 73.7% of patients agreed/strongly agreed that having a team of students improved their care and 99.3% would return to the clinic. Patients had both positive and constructive comments regarding the interprofessional model of care.The interprofessional teaching clinic is associated with a positive experience of care for patients. Further research is needed to determine causality and to isolate the most impactful elements of the interprofessional model of care.
