Interprofessional education connection chart

Mission:

To engage students and faculty in interprofessional education and experiences to support the collaborative team approach to patient/client-centered care

Vision:

The College of Health Sciences & Education, Misericordia University will strive to:

  • Prepare students and faculty to function as members of an effective collaborative health team, understanding the unique roles and responsibilities that support value for the patient in an evolving healthcare system.
  • Create a culture of “best-practice” supported by evidence that promotes a coordinated, timely, efficient, effective approach to inter-professional education and practice
  • Promote and advance research and scholarly activity related to inter-professional education and practice within the health care profession


Meet the Team

The Misericordia Interprofessional Task Force was organized in Spring 2015 with an intent to create, support and coordinate interprofessional education and practice within our college. As of Fall 2017, we have successfully transitioned to full committee status within the College of Health Science and Education.

What is Interprofessional Education (IPE)?

“Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team. This is a key step in moving health systems from fragmentation to a position of strength.”

FACULTY DEVELOPMENT TRAINING / TEAMSTEPPS TRAINING

Are you aware that we have 3 TeamSTEPPS Master Trainers in the College of Health Science and Education? TeamSTEPPS is an acronym for Team Strategies & Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety and is supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). TeamSTEPPS is an evidence-based set of teamwork tools, aimed at optimizing patient outcomes by improving communication and teamwork skills among health care professionals. The TeamSTEPPS curriculum promotes communication, leadership, situation monitoring and mutual support using techniques such as SBAR, Huddle, Hand-off, Briefs among others. If you are interested in Faculty Development Training or learning more about TeamSTEPPS for the classroom, please let your department representative know.

Please consider incorporating an IPE activity into your course curriculum!
