Foundations of Interprofessional Collaboration: Introduction to TeamSTEPPS Sessions:
KUMC Lauched our first Foundations of Interprofessional Collaborations pilot on October 18th, 2013 with nearly 100 students and 30 faculty and staff in attendance. The session started with a brief 20 minute orientation and proceeded with small group breakout sessions with interprofessional teams of 12-13 students per room. Preliminary results from the after session evaluations were very high with the highest rated activity of "learning with students from other professions" listed as Highly Vauable!
Our first required IPC: Introduction to TeamSTEPPS will be conducted on January 23rd, 2015 from 1:00 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. This will be offered to over 600 students from 12 programs at KUMC. I you are interested in training as an IPE Faculty Facilitator please contact Kristy Johnston.
"I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to be a part of the initial pilot of TeamStepps here at KUMC! I had a great time and thought it was a very valuable experience." Kelsey Simpson, School of Medicine Class of 2016
