Formatted Abstract/Summary
Introduction
Interprofessional education (IPE) for collaborative patient-centred practice has been described as one solution to improving the quality of health care delivery. Current educational settings present many barriers to implementation and assessment of IPE. Interprofessional assessment is a complex process and requires clear and thoughtful structuring linked to learning outcomes, and a committed interprofessional team of assessors.
Materials and Methods
A range of IPE opportunities are being used at the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Queensland to gives students from all discipline backgrounds interprofessional immersion experiences. New learning activities have required staff to develop novel ways to assess and provide feedback to students to maximise learning outcomes. This presentation reports on staff and community teams’ experiences of working together to evaluate students’ learning outcomes.
Results
Using two case-studies of IPE activities this presentation will explore how assessment strategies have been developed that incorporate interprofessional teams of faculty and community experts, and report on the response from these experts.
Discussion
The implementation of these assessment strategies including an examination of the key features for developing and evaluating an interprofessional assessment team will be discussed.
Conclusion
A framework for engagement between faculty and community experts to form inter-professional assessment teams can be constructed.
