Interprofessional Dedicated Education Unit Training (IPDEU) Wiser 10.1.19

October 1, 2019

As health professionals, we all work together in teams to provide patient care. While there are evidence-based strategies for effective interprofessional (IP) practice and collaboration, many of us never received formal training. The Interprofessional Dedicated Education Unit (IPDEU) is an educational model designed to train health professionals on an acute care unit (Presbyterian nursing unit 5G) in IP collaborative practice skills. Once trained, these health professionals serve as models of IP practice for health professions students rotating through the unit as part of their clinical training. Some unit health professionals will also be trained as formal IP practice instructors (IPIs) for these students. Unlike other student rotations, the IPDEU experience focuses exclusively on IP practice. This online training will equip you with essential IP practice and instructor skills.  The onsite training will allow you to iteratively practice these skills

Target Audience
