Abstract:
Interprofessional practice can improve patient care and safety, teamwork among professionals, and their job satisfaction. To practice interprofessionally, students need opportunities to learn the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes. The 63 bed rural hospital in Winchester, Ontario was the setting for a pilot project to test a model for interprofessional clinical education. Seven students, representing Nursing, Medicine, Physiotherapy, and Spiritual Care, were placed for their regularly scheduled clinical experiences. Students were assigned a preceptor from their own profession and met the clinical placement outcomes of their programs. In addition, they met once a week as an interprofessional group with local facilitators representing different professions. The facilitators developed case studies and led discussions about interprofessional care. Participants also piloted a Total Pain Module from an interprofessional palliative care course. The Interdisciplinary Education Perception Scale (IEPS), administered to students and preceptors before and after the project, gave quantitative results. Data from pre- and post interviews with students, preceptors, and facilitators were analyzed using qualitative descriptive methods. Participants were positive about the experience. They better understood other professions and working in teams. Advantages and disadvantages, lessons learned, and recommendations for expanding the project to other settings are presented.
