Interprofessional Education

The ever changing health care field demands increased interprofessional collaboration and practice to provide safe, patient-centered care.  If practitioners are expected to function in an interprofessional practice, then schools and colleges must provide their students with the skills needed through interprofessional education (IPE) opportunities.

Campbell University is in the early stages of developing a formal IPE program with the goal of ultimately improving patient care though interprofessional practice. This goal will be accomplished through multiple programs that aim to develop the Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice identified and published by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative.

What is it?

“Interprofessional education occurs when students of two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.”

— Center for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education

CICS

Campbell University Case Studies (CICS) for Interprofessional students offer students from different health sciences disciplines the chance to come together to discuss a standardized patient’s case. Students interview an actor portraying the patient, discuss a course of treatment, and learn from each other.

Below is a short montage of a previous CICS
