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 Colboration: 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 Collaborative Practice: Preceptor Summit

The Preceptor Summit is intended for clinical instructors/preceptors/field instructors who educate and supervise students in clinical experiencial learning rotations.

Overall Goals for the Summit

1.  Discuss re-engagement of interprofessional education and practice on experiential rotations.

2.  Develop preceptors to engage with interprofessional learners in a variety of settings including small groups and at the point of direct patient care.      

3.  Determine opportunities for interprofessional learners to intentionally engage in interprofessional education and practice in clinical settings.

The last session was held on March 6th, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.(Seats are limited to 50 per session.)

  Objective Structure Teaching Experience (OSTE) 

The Objective Structure Teaching Experience (OSTE) is a training tool for faculty that is similar to an OSCE for student learners.  This is a fully immersive experiential learning activity.  Through this high-fidelity OSTE, faculty members will be presented with three scenarios that require them to:

1. Facilitate a small group of interprofessional students

2. Precept an interprofessional team of students

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

These are offered a few times a year for more information or to find out more about this please contact Serra Goodman at sgoodman@kumc.edu
