Beyond the Theory Practical Aspects of Designing and Implementing an IPE Simulation Involving 180 Students and Three University Systems Deborah Bambini, PhD, WHNP-BC, CNE, CHSE, ANEF, Grand Valley State University Matthew Emery, MD, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine; Tina Barnikow, BSN, RN, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine Margaret de Voest, PharmD, Ferris State University; Lisa Meny, PharmD, Ferris State University Description This presentation will outline how one group of educators from three different professions and universities collaborated to create and implement an IPE simulation involving 180 medical, pharmacy, and nursing students. Discussion will include how common barriers were overcome, specifics regarding the logistics, the design of the specific scenarios, and strategies for increasing fidelity. Participant reactions and evaluation will be shared. An example of an outline to consider when developing and implementing an IPE simulation. Learning Objectives At the end of the discussion, participants will be able to " Describe key factors to consider when planning an IPE experience that maximizes each professions unique roles gives everyone a place at the table " Describe strategies to enhance fidelity of the experience, beyond the manikin and/or standard patient " Describe effective debriefing strategies for illuminating the interprofessional aspect of an IPE simulation " Describe key aspects of the presented IPE event that contributed to the success of the event " Identify strategies for implementing such an event in the home setting Course content: Interprofessional education Identifying need Building team Overcoming barriers Developing goals/objectives Developing the scenarios Logistics for space, personnel, budget, standard patients training, student flow, volunteers Debriefing strategies for IPE - small group, large group, and planning team Evaluation of the experience Design: This presentation will include active learning strategies to engage and facilitate audience participation and discussion. In addition, tangible examples of tools will be utilized throughout the presentation with the aid of audiovisuals highlighting simulation participants. These strategies are aimed at engaging the adult learner. Resources: Resources we intend to use will complement and enhance the instructional design. Our intention is to utilize audience response resources such as polling mechanisms (?) and discussion questions. The presentation will include audiovisual components including still images and video to facilitate learning.
