Group of Texas IPE Consortium Members Standing on a Staircase

Welcome to the Texas Interprofessional Education (IPE) Consortium!

Interprofessional practice and education (IPE) prepares future health practitioners to successfully participate in collaborative, patient-centered care. However, the successful implementation of IPE within higher education remains elusive to many institutions. As one strategy to address this, leadership from academic health sciences centers in the state of Texas formed the Texas Interprofessional Education (IPE) Task Force in 2015. Renamed the Texas Interprofessional Education (IPE) Consortium in 2018, the purpose of the consortium is to foster cross-institutional collaboration in order to expand learning opportunities and reinforce value for IPE as a critical aspect of health professions education.

The TeamSTEPPS® (Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety) Master Training Course is an interactive train-the-trainer course that prepares participants to plan, teach, implement, and sustain TeamSTEPPS® fundamentals. Developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Department of Defense Patient Safety Program, TeamSTEPPS® has rapidly become an industry standard for teamwork. This course produces Master Trainers, who will be trained to go back to their respective institutions and offer TeamSTEPPS® training and certification. Approximately 6 hrs of online pre-work must be completed at least 5 days prior to the in-person training.

The TeamSTEPPS® Master Training Course is a highly interactive course and content is based on a framework of four teachable-learnable core teamwork skills: Communication, Leadership, Situation Monitoring, and Mutual Support.

Who Should Participate:  TeamSTEPPS® Master Training is targeted at those individuals interested in implementing a structured team development training program within their organization. It is an intermediate-level course intended for those with a basic working knowledge of TeamSTEPPS® tools and concepts who are ready to champion the implementation of TeamSTEPPS® training. This training is led by TeamSTEPPS® Master Trainers with extensive experience in the application of TeamSTEPPS® training in preclinical and academic clinical learning environments. This training will focus primarily on TeamSTEPPS® integration into preclinical and academic clinical learning environments, though the concepts contained within TeamSTEPPS® training are applicable to all clinical environments. The Texas IPE Consortium offers this training provided by TeamSTEPPS® Master Trained Instructors for a fee and is not affiliated with AHRQ in the sponsoring of this training.

Theme:
 Seize the Moment! Harnessing Student Interest to Level Up IPE

The annual meeting is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with IPE professionals and peers. With keynotes, workshops, shift & shares, interactive demos, and more, together we continue to innovate IPE! Through collaboration and capitalizing on the power of student interest and innovation, IPE programming is enriched to provide greater context, student voice, and opportunities for engaging reflection. This brings IPE to life by providing meaningful experiences that empower and motivate students to think critically, use their creativity/talents, integrate learning with action, and broaden their understanding of collaboration to effect positive change in health professions education, experiential learning environments, and/or communities in which they live, learn, and work. 

Join us in Fort Worth as we explore how to seize the moment and harness student interest to level up IPE!

As universities strive to implement IPE into didactic, simulation, and experiential learning environments, it is becoming increasingly important to have outstanding IPE faculty facilitators who can help interprofessional learners gain the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for collaborative practice. The most successful and competitive institutions know how important it is to be committed to ongoing IPE facilitator training and development. The Texas IPE Consortium’s IPE Facilitator Certificate Course provides faculty with the tools and strategies they need to engage interprofessional teams of learners and maximize the effectiveness of their IPE training programs.

This engaging, experiential course provides an overview of the role of the IPE faculty facilitator, plus opportunities for practice using a wide range of tools and techniques. Through 6 hours of online pre-work and a one-day virtual training, faculty will gain the knowledge and skills to be an effective IPE facilitator, as well as will be able to promote organizational changes and collaborative leadership, which will support the promotion of IPE within the institution.

Approximately 6 hrs of online pre-work must be completed at least 5 days prior to the virtual training.

Requirements: To obtain an IPE Facilitator Certificate, participants must complete the online pre-work before the event and actively participate in the entire virtual training, complete the simulation/skills practice experiences, and submit a post-event evaluation. If a participant is unable to complete all components of the training for any reason, the participant is not eligible to receive a certificate. In order to complete or remediate any missing requirements, the participant would have to re-register and pay for the training again at a future offering.

Who Should Participate:  It is the ideal course for faculty, instructors, and/or preceptors who want to improve their ability to engage teams of learners; introduce IPE concepts and skills; support learners in the development of knowledge, perceptions, and skills for collaborative care; and measure outcomes of IPE learning activities.
