Big Data: How Three University Systems Use an IPE Registry to Drive Innovation and High-quality IPE Programming
Description: This session will describe the importance, development, and utilization of a curated IPE registry to build a database across three institutions to enhance communication, drive innovation, and support continuous quality improvement of interprofessional practice and education programming. The IPE Registry is a curated database of descriptive information of essential characteristics of a diverse array of IPE learning experiences. All items in the registry have been vetted for quality and are readily accessible and searchable by students, faculty, accreditation bodies, community partners, and outside entities. The registry was launched in response to student, faculty, and stakeholder feedback in favor of prospective registration and to enable quality assurance across institutional programs. The registry includes IPE learning experiences that target specific health professions learners (e.g., health professions, nursing, medicine, public health, pharmacy, social work) to meet various programmatic accreditation standards. Each submission to the registry contains at least 25 items that are common across institutions and details a) criteria for being included in the registry (e.g., title, description, learning methods, purpose, IPEC Core Competencies targeted, quintuple aim strategic goals, level of integration); b) activity participation (e.g., target audience, participation credit, frequency/duration, average number of participants); c) learning objectives; d) assessment and program evaluation; and e) program infrastructure (e.g., sustainability, funding sources, role of faculty, program organizer, registration details). The team will discuss the conceptualization, development, and implementation of the registry. Lessons learned and advice about creating a curated IPE registry will be provided, and participants will leave with three action items to implement at their home institution.
Theme: The IPE registry addresses the theme of “Building the IPE Case Through Information, Evidence and Outcomes” as the registry provides both information and evidence for faculty, students, and external stakeholders on available IPE opportunities at a given institution. Furthermore, the registry includes evidence of competency-based IPE activities useful for curriculum mapping, gap analysis, program evaluation, and accreditation reports.
Objectives: The learner will be able to…
1. Articulate the importance of an IPE registry to ensure quality, clarity, and uniformity of interprofessional practice and education programming.
2. List at least five potential applications of an IPE registry.
3. Describe three specific ways that an IPE registry could be used at your home institution.
Actionable Skills: Use an IPE Registry approach to inventory, curate, and evaluate interprofessional programming.
Develop a preliminary rubric based on criteria for interprofessional education entries into a registry-like approach.
Fulfillment of Priority Criteria: This session achieves the priority area of “measurable learning” as the IPE registry is specifically designed to measure an array of learning-related outcomes related to IPE programming.
Active Learning Strategies: At the beginning of the session, polling will be used to perform a gap analysis and identify participants’ barriers to IPE data gathering and areas of utilization at their institution. Results will guide the discussion focusing on the best application for participants. Subsequently, each participant will generate a document to take back to their home institution with three action items to implement regarding an IPE registry application.
In support of improving patient care, this activity is planned and implemented by The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education Office of Interprofessional Continuing Professional Development (National Center OICPD). The National Center OICPD is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
As a Jointly Accredited Provider, the National Center is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. The National Center maintains responsibility for this course. Social workers completing this course receive continuing education credits.
