Lightning Talk Description: The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC), Office of Interdisciplinary Program (OIDP) is charged with the development, implementation, operation, and evaluation of campus-wide Interprofessional Education (IPE) activities. IPE activities are offered through OIDP under the direction of a Curriculum Committee. The OIDP Evaluation Team, in particular, is charged with producing evaluation and assessment data related to IPE curricular outcomes for the review of the Curriculum Committee and other campus stakeholders.
The development and implementation of an assessment and evaluation framework in parallel with interprofessional curricula is essential to characterize the impact on health professions students, faculty, and the community as we engage in team-based care and learning activities. This lightning talk will present a roadmap for programs to consider as they make the case for IPE through assessment and program evaluation.
The creation of the OIDP Program Evaluation Plan involved several steps including 1) an environment scan for program assessment, 2) creation of program goals formalized in a Logic Model, 3) identification of a sustainable assessment tool for IPE curricula, 4) development of infrastructure for campus-level student tracking, and 5) formalization of a sustainable evaluation plan. Program objectives that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound (SMART) will be established for each section of the OIDP Program Evaluation. Key questions for consideration include: 1) What impact does interprofessional learning have on a student’s ability to collaborate with other professionals in support of effective teamwork? 2) What impact does interprofessional learning have on faculty members and their teaching experience? 3) What is the cost-benefit analysis of delivering interprofessional programs?
Project outcomes include the creation of a Logic Model, implementation of a campus-wide IPE assessment tool, creation of the Evaluation Plan template, and Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). This lightning talk addresses the Summit theme, Building the IPE Case Through Information, Evidence, and Outcomes, by providing an overview of assessment and IPE evaluation, via implementing an IPE program evaluation plan for students, staff, and faculty within an Academic health sciences center.
This lightning talk addresses many of the conference’s priority criteria including:
• Measurable learning and health outcomes
• Inclusion of one or more students/learners on the author or presenter team
