Leveraging Lessons Learned to Foster Leadership and Advance Interprofessional Education and Practice
Seminar Description: The COVID-19 pandemic led to unprecedented global disruption in both healthcare practice and education, yet also served as a catalyst for transformation. Implementation and adoption of long overdue changes in healthcare education and practice, including telehealth and virtual learning, were accelerated. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed healthcare at a crossroads of either viewing responses as either a temporary situation that requires short-term solutions, or as a major disruption that presents opportunities for innovation for sustainable development and transformation.
As we emerge from the pandemic, we have a unique opportunity to leverage lessons learned that can foster ongoing healthcare transformation through innovation, forward thinking, and IPECP. To capitalize on this opportunity and in a collaborative effort, the InterprofessionalResearch.Global (IPR.Global), the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative (AIHC), and the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative (CIHC) published Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice (IPECP) in Post-COVID Healthcare Education and Practice Transformation Era. This e-book explores the global impact and application of healthcare education and practice transformation on IPE with the goal of identifying best practices in integrating and sustaining IPECP and building a resilient workforce.
This seminar will build on the discussion in this e-book, reflecting the global perspectives of the authors, as well as similar symposia for international audiences. Leaders in both practice and education are asked to advance new areas[CEM1] and will benefit from sharing their perspectives as well as learning from others who are wrestling with similar concepts. More specifically, discussions will address virtual healthcare and practice, paying attention to concepts of equity, diversity, accessibility, and inclusion, expansion of our traditional notion of the team, which did not centre the patient voice, as well as integration of co-creation strategies engaging the university and practice community, learners, and those with experiential knowledge.
After attending this session, participants will be able to:
· Reflect on current responses, innovations and lessons learned in practice and education during the past three years
· Discuss successful longer-term strategies that could be sustained in future practice and education
· Discuss any barriers to implementing these strategies (both at a systems-level and at the level of the care team)
· Formulate questions requiring future work to advance both practice and education
Presenters will provide a brief overview and several examples of innovations that will stimulate discussion. Most of the seminar time will be spent in facilitated small group discussions. Additional active participant engagement will include the use of Padlet to capture participant discussions. Opportunities for networking and future discussions will be proposed.
As the landscape of higher education and healthcare continues to evolve, IPECP leaders need to reflect on changing societal trends, demographics, diversity, and technologies to become more adaptable for the future. The sustainability and growth of virtual learning and practice in IPECP will be reliant on how we best adapt to these changing trends and technologies to meet the IPECP agenda and the Quintuple Aim. Discussions among the collective will enable leaders to consider their future directions and to develop a collective response to advance IPECP.
