Abstract

AbstractProblem: Preparing health professional students for interprofessional collaborative practice, especially at a distance where provider shortages prevail remains difficult.Approach: A two-week interprofessional education (IPE) immersion experience preparing students from 11 disciplines and four universities was implemented. Week-one, using online technology, students develop/present an interprofessional careplan for a complex patient. Students then meet face-to-face to conduct group interviews with two standardized patient dyads. Week-two, students develop a website for use of the patient dyads. Websites are presented to faculty and fellow students via an online virtual meeting space.Outcomes: To date, 594 students have participated demonstrating capacity to: 1.effectively engage in interprofessional care,  2. utilize Telehealth to impact care and break down barriers of isolation, and 3. implement skills to advance healthcare.Conclusion: IPE combined with Telehealth technology provides future providers with knowledge and skills for interprofessional care regardless of geographic barriers.Next Step: Integrate more technology using mobile devices and enhance the evaluation process.
