Abstract:
With a greater focus on interprofessional practice in healthcare settings, the need to provide nursing students with clinical experiences that foster the development of interprofessional competencies is evident. One of the challenges faculty experience in supporting more interprofessional educational experiences is the current lack of specificity in IP competencies. General competencies such as teamwork, leadership, communication skills, negotiation and conflict resolution, knowledge of the other professions, and knowledge of one's own profession are enunciated in the current literature. An ongoing problem for educators is the delineation of the actual behavioural indicators of these competencies. The authors report on a study to develop a comprehensive listing of the competencies and associated behaviours of interprofessional practice. With these IP competencies and behavioural indicators specified, the presenters will address issues of preparing educators and preceptors to teach, value, support, and evaluate these competencies, using the behavioural indicators for both teaching and evaluative purposes. In addition, means of creating or supporting teamwork and collaborative practice in settings where interprofessional practice is not well-implemented will be considered, especially in terms of limited opportunities for all students to engage in interprofessional practice and develop the necessary competencies.
