Lubbock Campus - Room details and final instructions will be emailed one week before the day of the escape room challenge. 

The Office of Interprofessional Education offers a fun and engaging Escape Room for all healthcare professions students at TTUHSC. This beginner escape room is an adventurous way for students to meet others across our various healthcare professions, improve interprofessional teamwork and communication, and collaborate together to solve puzzles that will ultimately lead to a discharge plan in a simulated patient case. Team members are not required to have discipline-specific knowledge and teams will be provided clues as needed.

The IPE Escape Room Challenge is a perfect opportunity to learn more about TTUHSC, work with an interprofessional team of students from various professions, and learn more about the importance of interprofessional education and practice in healthcare. 

Following the completion of the challenge or at the end of the hour, a debrief will take place allowing teams to discuss their escape room experience and evaluate their teams performance.

Burnout in healthcare and healthcare education is an epidemic that has been linked to numerous devastating outcomes for learners, professionals, and patients. Many national healthcare organizations have stated that teamwork and mutual support are critical to improving resilience and well-being. Therefore, supporting and building resiliency and well-being of teams is essential. It benefits not only the individual members of those teams but also those who are served by and engaged with the team. 

Additionally, as interprofessional teams are becoming increasingly important in health care delivery, the benefits of interprofessional collaboration are becoming more apparent and can lead to improved morale, decreased burnout, and increased patient safety. The purpose of this virtual IPE small group event is to discuss and reflect on the reciprocal relationship between teamwork and individual/team resiliency.

Preventable medical errors continue to remain a leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming the lives of over 400,000 patients each year. These numbers underscore the need for patient safety training and education for healthcare professionals. Interprofessional education and practice are critical to patient safety and improved patient care. Additionally, as interprofessional teams are becoming increasingly important in health care delivery, the benefits of interprofessional collaboration are becoming more apparent and can lead to increased patient safety and reduced incidence of medical errors.

The purpose of this event is to highlight the role of team-based care in order to identify and resolve potential medical errors and hazards, discuss root causes in cases of medical error, and practice disclosure of medical errors as a team with standardized patients.
