The 7th Annual IPE Day 2021 at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) involved all eight campuses, including, Puerto Rico, and just under 2,000 students from over twenty healthcare professions. This lightning talk will showcase innovative technology-driven interprofessional learning, using the online setting due to COVID, to deliver virtual simulations to facilitate IPE. The interprofessional planning team of twelve staff and faculty from multiple professions ensured that in the virtual setting, every person (student and facilitator) had meaningful experience. The IPE teams of thirty students plus two facilitators with a minimum of five different professions in each Zoom room gave us the opportunity for three different evaluation tools. The qualitative IPE Day Worksheet, the IPE Day Evaluation that included the Interprofessional Collaborative Competency Attainment Survey (ICCAS) Tool and finally the Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare (DASH) Facilitator tool to measure the simulation goals and IPE Day outcomes. Data analysis is currently underway and will be ready for publication in August. We will emphasize and review the developmental processes of the four different simulations, so that NEXUS participants will leave with the practical knowledge of the “how to” incorporate effective IPE Day learning outcomes via virtual settings. One simulation we are most proud of include using “Healthcare Theater” undergraduate students in a telehealth simulation with a human trafficking survivor standardized patient. This simulation included the patient’s perspective. Our intention was to introduce students to human trafficking education in the interprofessional setting particularly because it is now required for many professional licenses. Every IPE Day participant took part in this simulation that encouraged students to think of health equity with patients, to recognize the signs of trafficking and the appropriate referral/reporting processes. We are excited to share the lessons we learned delivering a Virtual IPE Day for 2,000 participants.
