Interprofessional Team Seminar (IPTS)

Course Overview

The Interprofessional Team Seminars were implemented in 2008 and have become a required, longitudinal curriculum of six seminars for students from seven different professions at the post-baccalaureate level.  Students from medicine (3rd yr), nursing (ABSN and AGMSN), physician assistant education, social work (MSW), physical therapy (5th yr), occupational therapy (5th yr) and pharmacy (5th yr) from the St. Louis College of Pharmacy, participate in the seminars.

The course approaches interprofessional teamwork from the perspective of patient safety and quality care and utilizes a model that high-reliability, quality care is the product of individual professional skills, teamwork skills, and effective systems/processes of care.  Students are assigned to small groups, faculty from all seven professions support the facilitation of the small group activity sessions. Brief readings, patient-case review, and reflection assignments are provided to prepare for each seminar. IPEC Core Competences for Collaborative Practice, different types of teams, and patient-centered care are embedded in the activities. Quantitate and qualitative assessments are utilized to determine the student’s ability to apply lessons learned from the seminars in a clinical setting.

  2. Understand the relationship between effective team communication and improved patient safety and health outcomes and choose effective communication techniques to facilitate discussion and interactions that enhance team function.
  3. Demonstrate skills at effective interprofessional teamwork and patient-centered communications that integrate the knowledge and experience of other health professionals and patients to provide appropriate care of the patient.
