In response to the NEXUS 2020 retrospective pre-test discussion, a focused presentation will examine the benefits and limitations of the retrospective pre-test compared to the traditional pre-test post-test. As demonstrated in the body of literature, there is a potential overutilization of the traditional pre-post survey methodology that may be adding to the inconsistent findings of IPE efficacy. IPE researchers may not be aware of the alternate survey design options that may optimize research results. Therefore, this proposed session will present comparative data to assist researchers in selecting the optimum research design when examining IPE efficacy.
In order to examine IPE efficacy across professions, research design needs to be as robust and appropriate as possible to reveal meaningful data. The retrospective survey design may not be a well known option to IPE researchers.
Comparing data from two research designs may lead to a more informed audience for future IPE exploration. With examination of benefits and limitations of survey designs, future findings may offer improved understanding of the impact of collaborative patient care practices that affect better care, better value, and better education.
In support of improving patient care, this activity is planned and implemented by The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education Office of Interprofessional Continuing Professional Development (OICPD). The OICPD is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit for learning and change.
