The World Health Organization describes IPE and its relationship to collaborative practice as the result of when "students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Interprofessional education is a necessary step in preparing a 'collaborative practice-ready' health workforce that is better prepared to respond to local health needs" (World Health Organization, 2010).

The Office of Interprofessional Education hosts several events and activities throughout the year providing students an opportunity to collaborate across health professions to develop leadership, teamwork, and communication skills while building mutual respect for one another’s knowledge, values, and ethics.

Listed below are upcoming interprofessional education events and activities open for registration. For more information, contact the IPE Office at (806) 743-2028, or email ipe@ttuhsc.edu

This is accomplished by keynote presentations and panel discussions covering team-based care in SUDs, harm reduction strategies, and interviewing strategies to destigmatize the interview.

Time: 8:30 am -12:00 pm (Central Time)

Location: Virtual, Online Event

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 the 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 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.

Looking for a fun and engaging IPE experience? The IPE Escape Room is an adventurous way to meet new students across our various healthcare professions while improving teamwork and communication skills. Throughout this beginner escape room, teams will 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 team's performance. 

Participants may be asked to switch days and times to ensure an interprofessional mix of learners. 

Have a group of participants that you want to schedule? Email us at ipe@ttuhsc.edu for individual scheduling options.

Time: 8:30am - 12:30pm (Central Time)

Location: Virtual, Online Event

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.
