Abstract:
In Fall 2006, 23 first year nursing students and 25 first year dental hygiene students participated in a unique interprofessional practical skill development project. Having separately learned the classroom theory behind blood pressure and oral care, the students collaborated in demonstrating and teaching each other proper technique. Dental hygienists hosted the nurses in the large dental clinic at Casa Loma Campus. The nursing students taught and demonstrated proper technique in taking manual blood pressure readings and then assisted the dental hygiene students in practicing this technique on each other. Nurses hosted the dental hygienists at the Simulated Practice Centre at St. James Campus. Working in small groups, the dental hygiene students demonstrated best practice oral care routines and then assisted the nursing students in practicing these skills on each other as simulated patients and answering their questions. Students and faculty of both the dental and nursing programs learned a lot about each other, about the skills each brings to the team and about different approaches to learning and evaluating client. The presenters will share how interprofessional practice improves the teaching/learning environment and impacts client care positively. Opportunities for further interprofessional education will also be identified. (195)
