The role of relational routines in hindering transdisciplinary collaboration: the case of the setting up of a team in an Italian Breast Unit.
Authors: Sena B, Liani S Abstract Interprofessional teamwork is one of the main characteristics of centers specialized in the treatment of breast cancer, known as Breast Units, which since 2016 European legislation has made mandatory for Member States. However, interprofessional collaborative practice (ICP) has often been applied in traditional healthcare contexts on the basis of mono-disciplinary approaches. This paper reports the results of a case study of an Italian Breast Unit carried out through a qualitative research strategy. To understand the case being studied in its complexity the data were drawn from mul...

A pilot evaluation of simulation-based interprofessional education for occupational therapy, speech pathology and dietetic students: improvements in attitudes and confidence.
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)...

Assessment-For-Learning can use reflection as one technique to support students' growth. Thus, we investigated using reflective-writing within an interprofessional education (IPE) course using an exploratory mixed-methods design. In 2015, student-nurses, student-pharmacists, and student-physicians participated in an IPE course and completed self-assessments of student learning objectives (SLOs). In 2016, new cohorts of student-nurses, student-pharmacists, and student-physicians participated in ...
