Interprofessional education in healthcare simulation is an educational process in which students from two or more healthcare professions learn with, from, and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of patient care. It is an initiative to secure interprofessional learning (IPL) and promote gains through interprofessional collaboration in professional practice utilizing simulation modalities that are designed to emulate their collective work in patient care -thereby promoting collaborative practice and improved patient care outcomes. Physicians, nurses, technicians, administrators, and the many other members of the healthcare team benefit greatly from learning environments which promote improved communication and practice across the disciplines and specialties.
Four core competencies in IPE have been identified by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC).
* These core competencies include programming in the following content areas:
- Values & Ethics
- Relationships with patients, families and other team members
- Dignity and privacy of patients while maintaining confidentiality in the delivery of team-based care
- Roles and Responsibilities for Collaborative Practice
- Communication of team members' roles and responsibilities to patients, families and other professions
- Roles and responsibilities of other care providers and how the team works together to provide care
- Interprofessional Communication
- Effective communication tools and techniques, including information systems and communication technologies, for facilitating discussions and interactions that enhance team function
- Feedback to self and others about performance on the team
- Teamwork and Team-based Care
- Engagement of the health professional team - appropriate to the specific care situation-in shared patient-centered problem solving
- Individual and team performance improvement
