A pilot evaluation of simulation-based interprofessional education for occupational therapy, speech pathology and dietetic students: improvements in attitudes and confidence. J Interprof Care. 2019 Sep 18;:1-9 Authors: Mills B, Hansen S, Nang C, McDonald H, Lyons-Wall P, Hunt J, O'Sullivan T Abstract Many higher education institutions struggle to provide interprofessional practice opportunities for their pre-licensure students due to demanding workloads, difficulties with timetabling, and problems with sourcing suitable placements that provide appropriate practice opportunities. A series of complex unfolding video-based simulation scenarios involving a patient who had experienced a stroke was utilized as a case study for a three-hour interprofessional practice workshop. 69 occupational therapy (OT), speech pathology (SP) and dietetics (DT) students participated in a mixed-methods study comparing interprofessional attitudes before and after the workshop. Attitudes toward interprofessional practice improved pre- vs. post-workshop and overall. Students were highly satisfied with the workshops contribution toward learning, although OT and SP students were more satisfied than DT students. Focus groups confirmed students liked the format and structure of the workshop, suggested that students better understood the role of other professions and improved role clarification, increased their confidence to practice in interprofessional practice settings, but noted th...

Conclusion: Professionals state that using ICT solutions in rehabilitation after stroke could increase sharing between professionals and their patients and increase patient participation in the rehabilitation process. Significance: This study highlights the importance of developing ICT that healthcare professionals could use along with a person-centred approach. The results will be used to develop an ICT-supported multidisciplinary intervention for rehabilitation after stroke. PMID: 31545665 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionFrail patients are not routinely referred for ESD post-stroke. Patients who are pre-frail or frail make similar improvements with ESD compared to non-frail patient in functional independence but not quality of life. Comparable levels of physiotherapy and occupational therapy are provided but frail patients require less SLT. Further research is needed to ascertain if frail patients are appropriate for ESD.
