How UBC Health’s model of collaborative health education continues to evolve: From IPE enrichment to integration
Collaboration à la Carte co-sponsored by the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaboration
Speakers: Carrie Krekoski, Deanna Bracewell and Donna Drynan
Interprofessional education is at an interesting juncture, as enhanced delivery mode options, sustainability pressures, and learners increasingly distributed throughout the province influence future IPE directions. In this presentation, Carrie, Deanna and Donna will trace the evolution of UBC Health’s collaborative health education approach, from enrichment activities, to an incentivized points-based system, to IPE embedded within required program courses. We will discuss how protected time slots, distributed learners, and patient perspectives have combined to influence UBC Health’s current program, known as the Integrated Curriculum. Success factors, connections with the literature, and future IPE directions will be discussed.
