KUMC Center for Interprofessional Education and Simulation Faculty Development Offerings

Foundations Interprofessional Collaborative Practice: Level One and Level Two Facilitator Training

Foundational Facilitator Training

The Center offers an in depth training session to all facilitators to prepare them for facilitating the interprofessional teams prior to our required curricular offerings. These sessions are offered in the winter and fall prior to the Foundations of Interprofessional Collboration: Introduction to TeamSTEPPS offerings. The program is sponsored by the Center and are conducted by experienced faculty from our Curricular Planning committee who are experts in leading interprofessional teams.

This program is designed to provide our educators with the necessary skills they need to facilitate interprofessional teams, provide them with the necessary tools to conduct highly-active, experiential learning and finally to provide them with logistical information about our Foundational Level programs.

Interprofessional Objective Structured Teaching Experience (iOSTE)

The iOSTE is a training tool for faculty and preceptors that is similar to an OSCE for student learners.  This is a fully immersive experiential learning activity.  Through this high-fidelity OSTE, faculty and preceptors will be presented with scenarios that require them to:

1.     facilitate a small group of interprofessional students, even in the face of reluctant and disruptive behavior

2.     precept an interprofessional team of students, even when the team is dysfunctional and dominated by one voice

3.     evaluate team-based communication and patient care, offering up difficult, yet timely feedback

4.     participate in presenting the patient "with and in front of the patient", even when the team is used to the more traditional style of patient presentations

5.     co-precept an interprofessional team of students with preceptors from other professions

This exciting opportunity is being offered as two sessions on Thursday April 14th, 2016.

·        Morning Session #1 is from 9-12

·         Afternoon Session #2 is from 1-4

·        Please register ASAP, there are only 4 slots available per session on a first come first serve basis!

Please register by sending an email to Serra Goodman at sgoodman@kumc.edu and include "OSTE" in the subject line of your email, in the body of the email please include which session (#1 in AM or #2 in PM) if you have a preference

Interprofessional Preceptor Summit:
