Our UMKC health professions' deans have convened our curriculum and assessment leaders to develop a curriculum to teach and train UMKC health professions' learners together. The UMKC health professions schools also have a unique opportunity with all four schools on one campus. We have spent three years developing a longitudinal curriculum for students to learn skills and attitudes to effectively practice on interprofessional teams. The product is a collaboration of Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Health Studies, and Pharmacy and the curriculum occurs at two UM campuses.
The First Year IPE Class convened to learn and focus on the IPE Competency domain: Roles and Responsibilities with a focus on Patient Safety in chronic ambulatory care. The Second Year IPE Class convened to learn and focus on the IPE Competency domain: Ethics and Values with the focus on watching Dr. Hot Spot and practicing skills for the Ethical Delivery of Care. Prior to the event, students completed assignments, a pretest, an IPE attitudes survey, and a group assignment.
