This week will focus on Interprofessional Education (IPE). For this assignment, you will write a proposal to offer an interprofessional education class that addresses an educational need (topic) of your choice at the college where you are a nursing faculty member. This 4-6 hour interprofessional learning activity is for a group of nursing and allied health students from at least three of the following programs:
• Respiratory Care
• Surgical Technology
• Radiological Technology
• Medical Assisting
• Pharmacy Technician
• Diagnostic Medical Sonography
• Cardiovascular Technology
Write this as a proposal where you are seeking buy-in from the Division Dean and the Program Directors. Consider that you will need to briefly educate the readers about IPE. Do not use a topic you have used in any previous classes.
Assignment Details: Submit this assignment as a PowerPoint presentation. Make sure that every item below is clearly discussed (a separate PowerPoint slide for each one is recommended).
Address the following in your proposal:
• What is the educational need you plan to address with your learning activity?
• Describe the participants and your reason for selecting those groups?
• Why is IPE the best approach for this educational need?
• What best practices of IPE education do you wish to incorporate (discuss at least two)?
• Which IPE model will you use and why (use your book or one of the articles)?
• Will you design this at the exposure, immersion, or master level (see textbook)?
• Write 3 learning objectives for the program (1 cognitive, 1 psychomotor, 1 affective). Identify the Blooms taxonomy level for each.
• Provide a brief agenda of the day’s activities by hour and topic/activity.
• Explain in some detail the specific teaching/learning activities you will incorporate.
• Explain how you will evaluate the effectiveness of the learning activity?
Provide your rational for each item with supporting documentation from your resources. Put the main points on the slides and your explanation, rationale, and citations in the notes section.
Resources: You must include at least four references (can include your textbook and the provided articles). Two additional scholarly resources from peer reviewed nursing journals must also be used.
Grading: The assignment components will be graded on content, organization, presentation, writing mechanics, and correct APA formatting.
