Abstract:
Faculty members are essential to the promotion of interprofessional education (IPE) among students. During the winter of 2008 faculty members from Health, Public Safety and Community studies at Algonquin College were invited to participate in an IPE pilot research project. We used a non-randomized controlled before and after design to determine if participation in an interprofessional workshop influenced faculty members' attitudes towards IPE. The experimental group participated in a 7 hour hybrid workshop (3 hours online, 4 hours face to face) while the control group received no intervention. Surveys were used to measure participants' attitudes towards IPE. Participants in the experimental group also completed a written evaluation of the workshop. There was a significant difference between pre and post test scores of the experimental group on the Attitudes Towards Interprofessional Learning in the Academic Setting survey; t (21) = -2.1, p = .05. Participants rated the IPE workshop favorably and reported they had increased their awareness of IPE resources at the college. Participants indicated barriers to IPE currently exist in the academic setting, which need to be considered when moving forward with collaborative projects. Recommendations for future IPE initiatives at will be presented.
