Designing, Implementing, and Evaluating Continuing Interprofessional Education (CIPE) Activities Using a Systematic Planning Process
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.
Continuing interprofessional education (CIPE) has become increasing important due in part to the recognition that interprofessional education (IPE) is an important component of the suggested changes in traditional continuing education (CE) to increase health professionals’ ability to improve outcomes of care. A CIPE planning process will be presented to help guide CE professionals to develop, implement, and evaluate CIPE programs. This planning process involves a step-by-step procedure for integrating IPE into the existing CE planning process, and will be illustrated with an example of a CIPE program completed at the University of Virginia to improve sepsis care by enhancing healthcare team collaboration.
- Provide a step-by-step planning process to design, implement, and evaluate CIPE programs by integrating CIPE into the familiar systematic CE planning process.
- Provide an example to illustrate this stepby-step approach.
