About this item


Description: Providing opportunities for interprofessional education (IPE) positively influences team functioning and plays a key role in reducing preventable adverse events. Competencies such as effective communication and role clarification which foster mutual respect, are essential for nursing and medical laboratory technologist graduates entering the workplace. To develop these skills, undergraduate students at Ontario Tech University require IPE opportunities, yet with the pandemic, restrictions made in-person simulation impossible. This presentation will describe the process of developing an evidence-informed virtual simulation game to engage BScN and MLSc in IPE to enhance learning and promote reflection.

Date: August 19, 2021

Time: 12pm - 1pm (ET)

Course/Activity Information

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Discuss the benefit of interprofessional education during undergraduate studies to advance quality care.
  • Describe the process for creating an online virtual simulation game to continue IPE during a pandemic.
  • Explain the value of reflective debriefing used in interprofessional simulation to maximize learning.
