SHOW Experiential Learning 3-Course Series: Activating Community-Engaged Interprofessional Practice Through Innovative Interprofessional Education
The Student Health Outreach for Wellness (SHOW) tri-university initiative was formed in 2013 as a student-led volunteer program to deliver interprofessional (IP), team-based care to community-based vulnerable populations. Since its inception, SHOW attracted graduate and undergraduate students - numbering over 200 per year - from over 10 academic disciplines. However, this magnitude of students overwhelmed the initiative's philanthropic supported operations, prompting needed change for sustainability. Under these pressures, SHOW turned to the Guidance on Developing Quality Interprofessional Education for the Health Professions (HPAC) published in February 2019 by the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education and Health Professions Accreditors Collaborative to guide the transformation of the volunteer-based initiative to for-credit longitudinal experiential learning. SHOW faculty leadership, fueled by passion and purpose, launched immersive sessions to plan the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of three new 3-credit hour courses. These courses reflect a progressive build of knowledge, skills/behaviors, beliefs/attitudes, and performance learning leveled to infuse (Course #1), immerse (Course #2), and integrate (Course #3) students in interprofessional team-based care delivery in the local community for its most vulnerable populations. The three courses are unified by seven core threads: Values/Ethics, Roles/Responsibilities, Interprofessional Communication, and Teams and Teamwork (IPEC); social determinants of health (SDoH); health and healthcare disparities; and, leading interprofessionally. To date, this 3-course series was adopted for use in over 27 course maps (institutional programs of study) across three academic units - and, with an undergraduate IP certificate program imminent. This interactive seminar will share processes used by SHOW to achieve the curricular innovations and milestones.
Seminar Description: Zoom polling, breakout rooms, chat, and Q&A will be used to facilitate a robust discussion about longitudinal experiential learning. Participants will engage in identifying existing programs and/or activities with their home organization best suited for longitudinal experiential learning and use evidence-based guidelines to construct a preliminary curriculum blueprint. The blueprint will consider strategic direction, resource allocation and support, and logistical coordination.
By the end of the workshop, participants will:
- Identify native programs and/or activities best suited for IP longitudinal experiential learning course design.
- Level learning objectives by student type and identified native programs and/or activities.
- Use HPAC guidelines to construct a preliminary blueprint for longitudinal experiential learning curriculum for adoption by diverse stakeholders, disciplines, and programs.
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.
As a Jointly Accredited Provider, the OICPD is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. The OICPD maintains responsibility for this course. Social workers completing this course receive continuing education credits.
This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit for learning and change.
