Collaborative Professional Formation: Sharing Values in Interprofessional Education

Des Moines, IA US
March 5, 2015

There is no cost to attend and registration is not required. 

Series Description

Waves of interest and excitement in Interprofessional Education (IPE) are sweeping across health science schools, accrediting bodies, and national health agencies. In just the past two years in the US, national objectives have been produced and several centers for IPE have been created to assist faculty and practitioners in designing curricular programs and extending the outcomes into interprofessional practice. The Spring IAMSE webcast seminar series brings together a collection of leaders and programs that have implemented successful IPE activities and/or have unique approaches to addressing challenges that IPE may be facing in healthcare delivery.   The series will begin with an overview of IPE trends in health care and a description of strategies to address these issues. Other sessions include descriptions of specific programs that have successfully integrated IPE into large health science campuses, faculty development programs that focus on continuing interprofessional education, and unique barriers to successful implementation of interprofessionalism principles into clinical practice.  This series will extend the IAMSE series from Winter  2012, available on our website, by providing the latest insight into this ever-expanding field of health sciences education and practice.

Webinar Description

The marginalization of affective domain learning - learning concerned with values - forms a significant barrier to effectively preparing health professionals for practice and impedes inter-professional education and true cross-professional collaboration. Although it is thought by many to form the basis for effective learning in all domains, attending to students’ identification with, development, and articulation of values is difficult within the boundaries of traditional curricula. This neglect of the affective domain is particularly concerning in health professions education since these students will be called upon in their work to enact the values internal to their professions both as individuals and as members of interprofessional teams. Most health professions share many values including compassion, empathy, and service. Yet students often are left to interpret, reconcile, and integrate values - their own and those of their colleagues - without direct guidance.

This webinar describes the background and process of developing a process-based course focused on affective domain learning for nursing, medical and physical therapy students. The course employs guided reflection, drawing writing, collage and sharing in small interprofessional groups to guide students in articulating their own values and recognizing the values shared across professions.
