Abstract

Introducing the basic concepts of interprofessional education (IPE) to students at the pre-licensure level is challenging given the typical autonomy and diverse nature of health programs at universities and the need to find common times when students from different programs can learn together. This presentation will outline the development and successful delivery of several IPE curriculum modules introduced to students in medicine, nursing, pharmacy and social work as required program content within a university in eastern Canada. Delivery of these modules was carefully monitored and evaluated over four years (2005-08) with particular attention to the reaction of students to the online processes and content. Changes in online strategy made along with student satisfaction scores will be discussed. The session will conclude with suggestions to potentially increase student success using e-learning and to inform best practice using this delivery mode to deliver IPE competencies.
