Abstract:
Health Canada has identified interprofessional collaboration in patient-centred care as an effective means of improving the health care of Canadians. Because interprofessional collaboration and teamwork must begin in professional educational programs, many health sciences programs have initiated interprofessional education. One of the challenges is the lack of specificity in the competencies of interprofessional practice. 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 described in the literature. A challenge for educators, and subsequently for clinical educators in practice, is the delineation of the actual competencies needed for interprofessional practice. The authors report on a study in which they interviewed practitioners, faculty, and students in interprofessional practice to develop a comprehensive listing of the competencies of interprofessional practice. The presenters will engage participants in a discussion of these competencies and the implications for practice settings, both in terms of student learning and the professional practice setting. Means of encouraging teamwork and collaborative practice in both acute care and community-based settings will be explored.
