A learning culture is developed through daily huddles and the promotion of sharing disciplinary knowledge, fostering teamwork, and demonstrating appreciation of other team members. Daily Huddle Guidelines to provide structure to the team huddle sessions have been developed. Huddles are used to evaluate and improve team-based patient care while offering an opportunity to build interprofessional communication skills. Useful in guiding patient- practitioner collaboration is an integrative care plan template that has been developed as an additional resource for faculty, staff, and students. A resource that is available to faculty and preceptors is the Interprofessional Preceptor Manual.

152 INTERPROFESSIONAL EDUCATION FOR COLLABORATION Institution Program Description University of IPEP Alongside their work building a longitudinal Arizona (Interprofessional curriculum, the Arizona Area Health Education Education and Center (AzAHEC)–funded IPEP program is Practice) building a faculty development program. Faculty and preceptors receive training on how to mentor teams of students from multiple health professions. In spring 2012 IPEP piloted three faculty-preceptor training workshops dealing with teams and teamwork, communication, and teaching interprofessionally. These trainings will be available for organizations that wish to host interprofessional teams of students in the future.

The COCER Fellowship Program is a 2-year career development program funding four doctorally prepared fellows per year from four health care disciplines: family and community medicine (M.D.), nursing (D.N.P.), pharmacy (Pharm.D.), and public health (Ph.D. or Dr.P.H.). About 80 percent of the fellows’ time is spent in research training, collaborative research projects at the T3 and T4 translational levels, and a mentored research project. The AzAHEC supports the IPEP, as the remaining 20 percent of fellows’ time is devoted to interprofessional primary care practice in environments that serve underserved, predominantly rural populations in the Tucson area.

APPENDIX D 155 Institution Program Description Western University Small-group IPE Because of the curricular design of its IPE of Health Sciences faculty training program, there are 130 facilitated small groups (WesternU) that meet for 10 2-hour sessions throughout the academic year. WesternU currently operates two campuses. The main campus is located in Pomona, California, and a second campus with only an osteopathic medical college is located in Lebanon, Oregon. The IPE curriculum is delivered in an inter-institutional model with students and faculty also participating from Oregon State University and Linn-Benton Community College near the campus in Oregon. A modified problem-based learning method of course delivery is used, and it requires faculty who are trained and comfortable conducting these small group sessions. All faculty who facilitate in the IPE program receive annual facilitator development training. Approximately 250 faculty attend training sessions each academic year. Content includes the history and basis of IPE and collaborative care. It also includes small group teaching and learning, and facilitating student-centered learning activities. Additionally, faculty may attend optional monthly facilitator continuing education sessions throughout the year. Issues related to the implementation of the IPE program are discussed, and specific facilitation skills are emphasized. Professional There are 13 health professions represented and scope of practice more than 200 faculty who participate in the training delivery of the IPE curriculum. To maximize faculty effectiveness, a scope of practice faculty learning experience has been developed and is offered to all faculty members at several times throughout the year. These sessions are conducted as small workshops where participants are actively engaged in completing a template used to describe similarities and differences among scopes of practice of all 13 professions. While it does not include all practice act content, participants do benefit by describing what they know about various professions while learning many things that they did not know. Using this approach, the training is applicable to seasoned clinicians as well as to basic scientists without a clinical background.
