Most healthcare education programs teach students interpersonal communication skills. However, students learn little about Interprofessional (IP) Communication where learners from different professions develop communication skills that facilitate communication with each other in a collaborative, responsive, and responsible manner. Introduction and Background Method A working group of faculty members, from seven different academic units, engaged in an iterative process to develop explicit IP team communication objectives and then to develop learning activities aligned with these objectives. Working group members subdivided into 3 groups focusing on online learning materials, face to face learning and developing a tool to rate student group team communication. In final preparation for the IP event, the 3 faculty groups shared their work to further refine the student learning materials. Developing the Learning Materials Interprofessional Education Initiative Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative Competencies(CIHC) 1 Overview and Flow of the “Learning Health Promotion Interprofessionally” Student Event Student Facilitato r Learning Materials Developed An online pre-reading material titled “Introduction to Interprofessional Team Communication”. (Jensen & Glazebrook, 2011) A direction guide for learners to view an online vignette on IP team communication (Communication 2 Module: online ipe.com) 2, using the McMaster Team Observation Communication Guide (TOCG) to rate the level of communication in the vignette. Debrief questions for facilitators to use, during the event, to help prompt discussion about the team’s communication during the 3 team communication debrief opportunities. Each debrief was approximately 10 minutes. (Bergen & Toews, 2011) Development of a “Facilitator Feedback Assessment Tool” to assess the groups ability to apply IP team communication skills, which reflected the student team’s progress in meeting the IP team communication objectives. (Wener & Wener, 2011) Results Three sessions were offered in March 2012, October 2012 and March 2013. Approximately 250-440 students participated per session from 5-8 academic units. Student participants in the “Learning Health Promotion Interprofessionally” event varied with each offering and included students from the Faculties of Nursing, Medicine, Kinesiology and Recreation Management, Social Work, Clinical Psychology, Dentistry, Dental Hygiene, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Respiratory Therapy, Pharmacy and Human Ecology. Students were at different years and levels of undergraduate or postgraduate training. Pre-learning activities included an IP team communication reading in order to develop student knowledge of team communication, viewing an online video of a team in action and completing an assessment of the team’s communication using the McMaster Team Communication Observation Guide (TCOG), in order to provide an opportunity to practice assessing team communication. During the 3 hour session the students were prompted to pause and debrief specifically around the group’s communication. Post-event, facilitators assessed and graded the team communication abilities of their student group. Discussion and Conclusions Through the IP event students applied the team communication skills they learned, in a team setting. We believe we have a sustainable IP learning opportunity that explicitly teaches IP team communication embedded as a mandatory session within the curricula of 13 academic units. The team communication learning materials are being refined, including adding one additional team communication learning objective and a Student IP Team Communication Assessment Rubric to improve the quality of the IP learning experience.
